This report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project looks at the number of Internet users who have seen the graphic, gruesome, horrific war-related images in recent months that were not displayed by mainstream news organizations. It also looks at general public attitudes about the appropriateness of those images being made available online. There are major cultural divisions on these issues between men and women, young and old, Republicans and Democrats.
