A most unfortunate Post-It note placement

A Romenesko reader sent this image from yesterday’s Tyler (Texas) Courier Times Telegraph. (Here’s the online story, which doesn’t use the LIQUID ASSETS headline.)

UPDATE: Courier Times-Telegraph publisher Nelson Clyde says the paper has investigated this and concluded that readers didn’t get newspapers with the Post-It note in the position shown here. “We believe it’s not possible for the machines to have positioned it” in that manner and “it is our belief that the photos that have been put up on your site and others show stickers that were removed” and put in a new place to create the LIQUID ASS headline.
