Enough Already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fine.  Most of us expected this.  But, the New York Post has gone too far.

How did someone get approval to make this headline and have it get distributed???  There are way too many kids seeing this and it’s not right.  Call him anything you want in private, use all of the clever steroid related nicknames you can find, but The New York Post should be reprimanded and someone should lose their job for publishing this.

I am all for freedom of speech but where is the line drawn??  Why does this newspaper not have a parental advisory sticker on it?  Album covers, classic literature, and film get censored constantly.  Who gave the New York Post a free pass???

Think I’m overreacting?  Have a child call you an ‘A-Hole’ and then tell you that he saw it on the cover of ‘The Post’….    It’s no different than him/her dropping an ‘F-Bomb’ and saying that he heard it on his IPod.

  1. When I first heard the news I imagined the Post’s headline would be “FRod!” With a close up of A-Rod frowning and an inset of Canseco saying “I told you so!” My favorite Post headline of all time was when Clemens went to Houston. “What an Ass-Tro!” I love the Post.

  2. Jeffrey – I remember that Ass-tro cover. It’s classic.

    I can see the point about kids seeing it. But I love the Post. I believe they give you the headlines you’re thinking, not the ones you’re expecting to see.

    My favorite headline is from the 9/11/01 SF Chronicle that said, “BASTARDS” across the top with the disaster in the background.

  3. Well, what do you expect from the New York Post – it’s probably the sleaziest newspaper in the country. It’s brought to us by the same people behind the Fox “News” Channel.

  4. Hilarious. I was wondering how long it would take someone’s liberals views to come out against The Post! Dave – you rock!

  5. Dave, I hate Fox “News” but damn it I love the Post. I had a free one year subscription a few years back and man was it awesome!

  6. I work for the sports section of a newspaper and we talked about this headline all night last night.

    It would never fly at our paper or most in the country, but the Post is one amusing paper. I’m kind of glad it’s around.

    As for the kids. They’ll be OK. If they grow up in New York, they see a lot worse than that.
