9/11- The Falling Man

Read the story of the "Falling Man" photo at this link.
If you choose, you can also watch a documentary about the photo here.
Then read this interview with photo editor Kenneth Irby
on when graphic photos should be published:

Review the code of ethics linked below from the Society of Professional Journalists, an organization dedicated to promoting and defending the First Amendment and to encouraging ethical behavior in journalism.

Code of ethics: https://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp

Then imagine it's Sept. 11, 2001, and you're the editor of a mid-sized daily paper. You are planning your coverage of the 9/11 attacks for the next day's paper. Would you publish the falling man photo? Why or why not? Write an essay of at least 400 words explaining your decision. Be sure to refer to the interview with Kenneth Irby and the SPJ guidelines to justify and explain your decision.
