SMH!! Florida Newspaper Placed A Gun Ad Below Stories About Mass Shootings.
South Florida newspaper, Sun Sentinel issues an apology after placing a gun ad on the front page right under articles about mass shootings after peole complained that it was foolish and insensitive.
“We deeply regret placement of a gun advertisement on our front page Wednesday morning. It is against our policy to run gun and other types of controversial advertising on our front page. We understand how the juxtaposition of certain ads and news stories can appear extremely insensitive, and we failed to prevent such a juxtaposition today. We are taking steps to ensure this does not happen again, and the Sun Sentinel now has a moratorium on gun advertising.“-Publisher Nancy Meyer/Sun Sentinel
