Look, you're perfectly entitled to your feelings about such photos. But in looking at your OP, it seems pretty clear what your real problem is. But in order to make this rant against this particular publication which you personally dislike, you have to ignore the history of photojournalism.

The photo you highlight is a very powerful photo. You can bicker about the sensational headline, but the image does a much, much better job of highlighting the horror of what happened then any written story could convey to the reader. This sort of thing is what makes photojournalism so powerful... and there are countless examples like this from across the history of published media.
