Today while perusing Slate, I noticed an unusual banner ad; the first frame says "The Moon Landing was Faked. There was once life on mars. The Raelians cloned a baby. "
The Second Frame in large letters says "Who can you trust?" The third: "New York Times: 50% off!"
I understand that this is probably supposed to be "hip". But for a newspaper under almost constant attack for its perceived liberal bias, why would they choose an add that makes it sound as if, like the "Weekly World News
" once was, the paper is designed to appeal to deluded nuts?
