The Anchorage Daily News made an unfortunate flub on the front page of today’s paper, which carried a large photo of a woman who had lost her right leg in a bike accident.
Placed right beside the large photo of the amputee in a hospital room was an ad for a company that grinds tree stumps. The headline: “Got Stumps?”
Here’s what it looked like, courtesy of independent media blogger Jim Romenesko:
Romenesko reports that the owner of the stump-grinding company, TBF Services, said the placement was unintentional, and that he booked the ad a year ago.
“Someone wasn’t thinking,” TBF Services owner Carl Bramante told Romenesko.
The photo was part of a front-page feature story about Judy Abrahams, an Anchorage triathlete who is returning to competition after having her leg amputated following a 2006 bike accident.
