City Ads (News) uses the right picture

August 27th, 2005 at 06:37pm

I love stories I can tie in with previous posts!

You may recall that a couple weeks ago I declared that City News is the worst newspaper in the country, and then regular commenter John B1_B5 noticed that they were using a picture containing some unknown model to promote a theatrical presentation (albeit supplied by The Canberra Theatre Company and not checked by City News).

Well this week they have a picture on the cover of “The Canberra Review” which promotes a new presentation of Romeo & Juliet and others by the Russian Ballet (you may recall from a previous post that some of this will be “the most captivating and sensual nude scenes ever”). On this occasion they appear to have the picture correct, which suggests to me that The Canberra Theatre took notice of John B1_B5’s phone call and/or City News want to retain at least one shred of credibility.

The real estate section, “City Property” is interesting this week. A quarter page ad semi-formatted as an article on page two, a quarter page article on page 16, an almost half page opinion piece on page 17…and the rest? You guessed it…Ads!

    Looks like it was worth the effort to alert City News to that ‘misleading’ photo used to promote “Carmen” — as supplied by the Canberra Theatre Company.
    (The Afro model depicted in the advert had absolutely nothing to do with “Carmen” whatsoever ) .
