Mainstream Media Fail: Financial Times Flunk Trial by Advertising

Amnesty International's Press Release on the refusal of the above advert by the Financial Times over alleged actionable content IS HERE. Via Frying Pan Fire, the blog of @monstris, an irreverent broadcast NUJjer.

Meanwhile Royal Dutch Shell were not remotely amused* by a press release, purporting to come from the corporation, saying they'd be good corporate citizens, heaven forfend. Reminiscent of The Yes Men's "What If?" modelling way back in March. * Actually the gripe site at the link, was, amused

UPDATE 14:06: List of blogs posting this poster is evolving at Vagina Dentata which seems to take it's name from a toothy beaver jaw cast.
