Covering the page 1 newspaper headline

west-australian.jpgThe West Australian today has an ad for MBF stuck on top of the headline on page one of the newspaper.  While I understand the need for publishers to make a buck where they can, I have to ask – what is the value of a headline in driving sales if it is partially covered up by an ad? I like The West Australian, it is a newspaper for its marketplace.  I’d say it is currently the best newspaper out of single newspaper capital cities.  I don’t like the ad because it detracts from what the newspaper is about.
