Paper Magazine made big news this week by having a story featuring Miley Cyrus nude with some, but not much, body paint. You can see the article in full resolution by clicking here.

Miley Cyrus was trending on Google for at least 24 hours, probably even longer.

It was features on the Google News home page as well and of course, when people searched for Miley Cyrus in Google, this news story came up first and was linked to.

But that upset some Google users.

A Google News Help thread has one user who said why is Google showing nudity? Shouldn't Google News block articles about nudity?

Well, this is a tricky one. This is news, many people want to read and look at it. If someone is searching for it, should Google not provide the link?

There have been times in the past where the wrong image of people show up on Google News and it was nudity. But this is different.
