Gannett Paper Includes Vulgar Language in ‘Kid’s Corner’

As you can see, Gannett’s Staunton News included some interesting advice for its “Kid’s Corner” readers today. According to Jim Romenesko, the caption originated from an Onion article on fantasy football.

The Staunton News’ executive editor has issued an apology for the caption, explaining “The print weather package is fully assembled by Accuweather and placed on the page in a completed form. The language was not caught by our editors and made it into print.”

What’s more hilarious — the caption or Staunton News editors thinking kids read newspapers?
