Florida newspaper advertises guns under Parkland massacre story

To Fort Lauderdale, where Florida’s Sun Sentinel daily newspaper thought it ok to publish an advert for a gun show righty below a front-page story on he massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and a second story on a gunman who murdered five people at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport.

The Sun Sentinel has apologised. The Miami New Times has more:

“It’s a mess. It’s horrible,” says Julie Anderson, the Sun Sentinel’s editor in chief. “We’re taking every step possible to make sure our editorial staff always see ads before publication so something like this doesn’t slip through.”

In her statement, publisher Nancy Meyer said, “We deeply regret placement of a gun advertisement on our front page Wednesday morning. It has been against our policy to run gun and other types of controversial advertising on our front page.”

 

 

So who was checking? Does anyone read the paper at the paper? Can we blame outsourcing, at least partially?

The Sun gives free boat with news of Superstorm Sandy

THE Sun produces the juxtaposition that reports on Superstorm Sandy – the weather event that happened where big media live (so overshadowing every other news event on planet Earth, including the death of more than 50 people in Haiti from Hurricane Sandy). Above the headline, the Sun thought it apposite to offer readers a “City Police Boat” made of Lego.

The best ever juxtaposed headlines are here.

Juxtaposed image of the year: Liverpool’s paedo priest and the ‘Hot’ boy

THE Liverpool Echo brings news of Father Peter Hooper, a Catholic priest from the Wirral  jailed for five years by Liverpool Crown Court for sexual activity with a male minor.
