Journalism so powerful it needs a warning

Some powerful, unflinching reporting and photography on the front page of the Virginian-Pilot today.

From Charles Apple's blog:
This note caught my attention this morning. It was stripped across the very top of page one of the Virginian-Pilot.

And right away, readers can see the reason for the disclaimer. This incredibly powerful picture of a gravely injured soldier in Kandahar fills nearly the entire top half of the page.

The photograph by Pilot staffer Ross Taylor – is of 19-year-old Eddie Ward. He was nine years old when the war in Afghanistan started, writes the Pilot‘s Corinne Reilly.
