USAT | Founder Al Neuharth would so approve!
USA Today doesn't publish Metromix, the entertainment franchise owned by Gannett and Tribune Co., and known for photos of barely dressed clubgoers. But it's not far behind, in an article that's been one of USAT's most popular stories for days and days now (I've lost track): "Adult and topless pools make a splash in Vegas."
Naturally, all the action's in the photo slideshow. (Exhibit A, above.)
Diving into the shallow end, I'm reminded of that famous directive that USA Today founder Al Neuharth handed to editors near the paper's 1982 launch: "When you run a picture of a nice clean-cut all-American girl like this, get her tits above the fold."
