More heartbreaking headlines from Gaza

Beirut bureau chief Anne Barnard and photojournalist Tyler Hicks at The New York Times had the unenviable task recently of reporting on four young boys killed while playing on Gaza Beach (45,318 shares). The piece earned a lot of praise, but not from First Look Media's Daniel Froomkin, who demanded of public editor Margaret Sullivan, "Seriously, @sulliview, why do NYT headlines make it sound like shit just happens in Gaza?"

Still, photog Hicks' explanation of the story behind covering the four boys through a lens will be sure to choke you up (19,548 shares). They're "heart-lacerating pix from @TylerHicksPhoto," observed Anna Mehler Paperny at Global News. "Been putting off reading @TylerHicksPhoto's story on the 4 boys killed," admitted journalist Erin Geiger Smith. "But it's time. For you, too, if you haven't."

Plus, writer Jeff Wilser took umbrage with the Times' digital layout with respect to Gaza stories' placement. "Hey, @nytimes, I love you, but... awkward," he scolded.
