UPDATE: The paper apologized in Sunday. See below.
I gotta let the picture do the talking here (I added the banner before I posted it to Facebook):
Something like a gun ad next to a school shooting story might not be surprising coming from a small town paper, where the production may be automated and the editor doesn’t give a damn. But we’re talking about the newspaper of record for the eighth largest city in the United States.
From page A-3 of the Sunday paper:
On Saturday, the U-T published a story about the high school shooting in Centennial, Colo., on a page that also contained an advertisement for a local gun show. The adjacency was unintentional, and the U-T San Diego apologizes for the oversight.
