Newspaper runs Sandy Hook back-to-school story next to gun show ad1/3/2013
After a South Carolina newspaper ran a story about the Sandy Hook shooting near a gun ad, you'd think other papers would be extra careful. However, another one, the Stamford Advocate in Connecticut, has failed the juxtaposition test spectacularly. The paper ran a story on Sandy Hook Elementary kids returning to school right next to a massive ad for the "East Coast Fine Arms Show." (We can only wish it was literally about "fine arms.") Sometimes these juxtapositions can seem intentional (if mean-spirited), like two headlines incorporating the word "huge" next to an image of Chris Christie. We're guessing, though, that whoever dropped the ball on this page layout is getting a serious dressing-down today. [Source]
