I wasn't offended by the picture but rather by the headline.  Rather than 
"7 Killed in Wakefield Office" or some such, it was "Rampage at the 
Office" or an equally Herald-ish headline.  WLVI (channel 56) and I 
assume other TV stations used similar wording.

Where I live, the Globe has no home delivery, so I read the Worcester 
Telegram & Gazette (now also owned by the NYT of course), which had a 
much more standard front page headline.
