The first horrific media placement of the year

Via Buzzfeed comes Page 5 of The Stamford Advocate, in which a gun show ad appears next to a story about Sandy Hook Elementary School reopening after last year's horrible shooting rampage that killed 20 children and 6 adults.

These mistakes happen, and nobody would dare suggest that anyone in the community would purposely place this ad right there. It's more of an issue of quality control, or rather lack of it, in today's mainstream media.

But accidental or not, I was just served up this ad by the homepage of the online edition:

The ad is actually for an arts exhibition. But once again, a chilling combination of images.
