provocative photos of Loughner

CNN is reporting there are “provocative photos of Jared Loughner in a g-string with a gun.” Leaving aside the fact that makes me want to scream “MY EYES” and run for the brain bleach, why is that important or worth a story on a major news network?

The only possible explanation is the anti-gun agenda of CNN and a desire to titillate. As a long-time journalist and editor, if one of my reporters came to me with that story and wanted to run it I would have told him no. It’s not relevant to the overall story. But then, CNN has never really cared about relevance, just ratings — which might be why theirs are so pathetic.
