NYT Runs Nipple on Page One

Honest discussion about breast cancer in Israel on the front page of The New York Times? Check. But there’s a photo accompanying the piece that features a woman’s breast—and the hint of the nipple—and the woman’s Star of David tattoo, so will anyone notice? That’s the question after seeing the front page of Wednesday’s New York Times, which covered the alarmingly high rates of breast cancer in Israel and featured the photo of the breast of a 28-year-old woman who had discovered a lump in her breast. The high rates of breast cancer have led Israeli scientists to advocate for a national-screening campaign to test women for genes that may cause cancer.
