Why does a StarNewsOnline blog call its feature ‘Food Porn’?

Pam Sander

Manna’s Kyle Lee McKnight created this dessert featured in the Food Frames feature of the Port City Foodies blog on Aug. 20, 2012.

Q. Why does the StarNews call its food section “Food Porn”? Why do they think food & porn go together?

A. Monday Food Porn was the name of a weekly post in the Port City Foodies blog at StarNewsOnline.com. It was initiated by StarNews photographer Paul Stephen and features photos of delicious dishes submitted by readers.

Some readers were offended by the name. Paul heeded the call and held a contest to rename the feature.

It’s now called Food Frames. It still features those delectable delights to bring cheer to Monday readers.

Now that the StarNews has been sold, will the NYT crossword puzzle be discontinued?

Why have many of the StarNews newspaper racks disappeared?
