The Toronto Metro is a…Porn Mag?


In case you missed this morning’s Toronto Metro, they decided that publishing a picture of a student with his ‘member’ sticking out would be a good thing. A colleague ‘pointed’ it out to me and the first thing I wondered was doesn’t the Metro have at least a 3-stage approval for anything that goes to print?

For starters, a photographer took this shot and probably uploaded it, with a ton of others, up to a computer. Then an assistant editor picked from a few reco’s and recommended to run it. Then the senior editor flipped through the whole issue and totally missed it.

Then it got printed. And went out to about 1 million people in Toronto. On their morning commute. For free.

Yes. This is a huge mistake. I just feel bad for the children.

Thanks to Mike and Jennifer for the update and link!
