Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: During his campaign, a photograph was taken that ultimately became a well-known symbol of Adlai's "frugality and earthiness." Photographer William M. Gallagher of the Flint Journal later won a 1953 Pulitzer prize based on "the strength of the image." What was it? That would be a hole in his shoe.

Congratulations to Craig Pittman ‏of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Jason HenselAimeeAmy Bennett WilliamsJeanne KirkHiram ReisnerEdward TennerRobert FortnerGeorge McGrath, columnist Margo HowardHollywood HighlandsMike McCallister, freelance journalist Amy Zipkin, and Ken Walker also with the Tampa Bay Times for getting that right, as well.

Speaking of iconic photos, here's today's question: When deciding how to handle graphic or violent photos, particularly on the front page, newspaper editors often subject images to a test called ... what? (Hint: the test involves whether you could safely eat your morning cereal while viewing the photo).
