Newspaper covers-up lead story

telecoverupThis is one of the worst cases of newspaper editorial cover-up I have seen. The Sunday Telegraph in Sydney yesterday had an ad for Quickflix stuck over the front page headline. So much for news selling newspapers. Shocking. Shameful. I wonder how the editorial team feel.

    The Saturday Advertiser in Adelaide, was also a disgrace, the papers were stuck together , because stickers were hanging over the edge.. a total disgrace ,.. guess what I took every sticker off, in my shop, so they were presentable.

    I have one customer in particular who has developed animated hatred for these stickies, and I get an earful every morning about them, plus the sticky. Joy, really.

    Colin, you will now get a visit from the Advertiser rep to say “Customers complained that the stickers were missing”. I did.

    David I hope the rep had evidence backing up their claim, a phone-tap maybe?
