The Pitfalls of Journalistic Integrity

Image hosted by

An enterprising photographer in Xiemen city
in China layed in wait in front of a pothole in order to capture this perfect Kodak moment.

People gave him shit for exploiting the poor schmuck's misery. But hey, the pothole got fixed when the photo came out.

So, readers. Is this photographer right, wrong, or just a bit of a douchebag for doing what he did?

And what am I for making a javascript mouseover of this man going "splat"?

(Look in the sidebar. Blogger won't let me put it in the post itself.)
