Poll: Should images from IS execution videos be published by the media?

Even outlets who have previously published them have stopped, what do you think?

THE SUN NEWSPAPER has published a short editorial explaining why it will not be publishing images captured from the video of Alan Henning’s execution.

While the Islamic State execution videos have been widely boycotted, many outlets have published still images from them, this includes The Sun. Some continue to do so.

It’s happening less and less however, as demonstrated by The Sun’s decision, but do you agree?

Today’s poll: Should still images from beheading videos be published by the media?

Poll Results:

No (6051)
Yes (1058)
It depends what the image shows (1035)
Not sure (201)
