MIKE BARNICLE, MEDIA CRITIC. In the New York Daily News, Barnicle weighs in on the New York Post front-page photo of a young woman leaping to her death. (Via Romenesko.) Here is Post chief copy editor Barry Gross's defense. So help me, I agree with Barnicle. This was a suicide, with no larger implications that would warrant running the picture. But what's Barnicle going to say the first time the Boston Herald runs a photo like that?
