The photo that prompted Cincy Enquirer to stop the presses

I reported on Wednesday that the Cincinnati Enquirer stopped the presses last weekend and discarded thousands of Sunday newspapers after someone noticed that the word fuck could be seen in a photo. Several thousand readers still got papers with the image, and editor Carolyn Washburn apologized for that. “I … am working this morning to understand why this photo was chosen in the first place and why it was not caught sooner,” she told people who complained.

Jim Hopkins at Gannett Blog posted the photo today after obtaining it from a reader.
