The National Federation of Retail Newsagents has now published its guidelines for handling magazines with covers which may be offensive. Given the negative feedback some newsagents have received from customers on Explode, Picture, People, FHM and Ralph, it would be appropriate for Australian industry associations to consider similar guidelines or to at least discuss the situation with publishers. I’m not sure what I would do. I have had customers complain to me but then if I hide the titles I know sales will tank. It’s a challenge but cannot be ignored.
