NYT: No Picture Tells the Truth  
Sunday, January 9, 2005 | by Eamon Hickey
New York Times public editor Daniel Okrent discusses the paper's use of a front-page photo of an Indian woman grieving over the bodies of children killed by the Asian tsunamis. Many Times readers objected to the image, which was taken by the AP's Gautam Singh.

Okrent also briefly explores broader questions of how the meaning of a news event can be defined by the picture that is chosen to represent it, and how that meaning is shaped by the aesthetic and editorial decisions made by photographers and editors.
