Ad for Gannett’s Springfield (MO) News-Leader:
I asked News-Leader executive editor David Stoeffler how the staff reacted to this ad, and if they knew what they were posing for. He responds:
I have not heard any specific reaction from the staff. People laughed when it was displayed at a staff meeting today.
They knew they were posing for a “fun” promotion ad. Just one of many we are doing.
Are you a News-Leader journalist? Please email me your reaction.
