Wells Fargo ad crossed a line

I looked at The Sun on Sunday and was a tad confused. "What happened to the front page news?" I asked myself. After getting over my confusion, I realized that The Sun had sold a four-page ad to Wells Fargo (sounds like highway robbery to me), and that the news was buried somewhere inside the ad (isn't it supposed to be the other way around?).

Look, I don't begrudge The Sun for needing ad revenues. I even wouldn't have minded a four-page ad spread inside the newspaper. But what came Sunday was not a newspaper but an advertising supplement for the latest, greatest bank in town.
