The AP recently published a picture of a dying Marine in Afghanistan. Secretary of Defense Gates wrote a pleading letter to the AP asking that the picture not be published out of respect for the family. The AP staff reconvened and decided to stand by their decision to publish the photo. Should the family's wishes have been respected in this matter or should the public’s "right to know" outweigh the wishes of the family? What are your thoughts on this?
