The Daily Caller is promoting its weekly gun giveaway in an ad placed next to a story related to the Colorado theater shooting. The headline for the story reads, “Tea party leader tells media to stop ‘false and reckless reporting’ after Batman shooting“; to the right is an ad that says, “Who should Romney select for VP? Click to enter The Daily Caller gun giveaway.”
The ad cycles through with a variety of others.
Jim Romenesko pointed out a similar issue on the Denver Post’s website, where a banner ad on the theater shooting story promoted a shotgun demo. The newspaper has taken down the ad.
