“I asked its editor, Deborah Needleman, about one objection: that the cover model was too skinny. She responded that she, too, felt that many models were too thin, and with this one she had considered ‘adding some fat to her with Photoshop.’

“John Schwartz, a Times reporter, was among the first to react. On Twitter, he called her comment ‘jaw-dropping.’ That reflected how deeply most journalists feel about the integrity of photographs.”
