Every small step in the direction of the coarsening of the culture deserves to be questioned. There was no reason to include the nipple except to generate controversy/buzz/what-have-you.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Newspaper exist to sell... they have to generate some "buzz" to cause people to buy en mass.
Legitimate tactics, no harm done.
I wonder what the reaction would be if it was a pic of a scrotum with a scar and a missing testicle.
EDIT: Maybe with just a bit of penis showing to liven things up and mirror the little bit of nipple.

I dont mind saying that I was VERY offended. WHen I first read some of the hysteria regarding this edition and Times "showing nipples" on their front page, I wasnt...all...excited...but was certainly curious as to the content and what the big deal was. Then I saw it. Whaaaaaaaaaaat??? Theres no image of a breast or nipple. I felt...kinda cheated. Come on, Times...step up your game!!!
