Arts editor: Globe and Mail used profanity on page one ‘only after great deliberation’

Globe and Mail front page, December 20 (I added the arrow)
fedup

The public editor on using “Fucked Up”: “This was a special circumstance since it is the proper name of the band and the project was an important one that needed front-page notice for the music. If you are going to mention the names of the band, one cannot be excluded.”

The arts editor: “It’s hard to imagine another scenario in which The Globe would ever print such a word on its cover again. We did so this time only after great deliberation, and I firmly believe that the decision made for this weekend’s cover is unlikely to be repeated.”
