The Age disrespects closing the gap message

theage-coverupFairfax yesterday stuck an ad over the top of the lead image in the front page of the newspaper yesterday, a story about the Closing the Gap report delivered by the Prime Minister in federal parliament on Tuesday. Fairfax took money to advertise the Mexican Fiesta show on SBS TV. I am shocked that people in production didn’t realise the insensitivity of the placement of the ad and I am more shocked that this has not been more widely covered.

    My copy of The Age on Thursday didn’t have any post-it note on the cover. Maybe the newsagent had already removed it?!?
