There has been much debate in newsrooms in London about whether outlets should have used the photograph of the man whose body was found in the Thames last week.
London police were trying to identify the man as they investigated his death.
At CTV, the photo was used, but once the man was identified, it was taken down from our website.
AM 980 also had the photo on their website.
I believe the Free Press chose not to run it.
Turning to the public for help, is something the police do on a daily basis. In this case, it helped.
But others argue the man lost some dignity with the published photo.
I tend to agree with the police on this one. Time was of the essence. If there was foul play, police needed to get on top of it, and fast.
Do you agree with media using a photo of someone who is deceased?
