NYPress Exposes Nipple On Cover

This week’s NYPress, censored

Let’s just call this “Decency Week” for New York media. NY Press, the embattled alt-weekly, decided to publish a bizarre, mask-wearing, nipple-bearing cover shot for its “Wear Your Home” issue.

Of all the possible weeks of the year to try and shock, this one would have to rank as perhaps the worst in terms of buzz generation.

Portwood, you’ll recall, took the helm when then-editor Adario Strange quit after just a year there.
