They say print is a dying medium, but you wouldn't be able to tell from the quick ascendancy of Just Busted, a three-month-old Tennessee newspaper which regularly sells out at stores.

So what's the secret to the weekly's instant success? Well, as its name suggests Just Busted consists of mug shots -- and solely mug shots. And not only has the one-dollar tabloid proved popular with consumers, but some say it has made it easier for the authorities to capture fugitives who have skipped out on bail.

However, not everyone is fan of the new publication. Chattanooga-area defense attorney Jerry Summers thinks publicizing mug shots of those who have been arrested but not yet convicted infringes upon their Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial.

We're not sure what to think about this, but we will plead guilty to having gawked at the mug shots of just-busted sexy ladies in the past.
