Good? Not for supposedly impartial journalism it isn't. Clearly representative of the unfortunate decline of unbiased, non-agenda driven reporting.

didn't read the tagline? "get talking" invites to debate.

Yes, I did read the tagline copycomoelcopi. Inviting discussion is great. Presenting a hyper-partisan point-of-view, as this ad does, calls into question this journalistic institution's ability to present information accurately and fairly. Not a good thing for a "news"paper. Wouldn't you agree? Or are you equally blinded by your biases?

I've hardly ever seen a campaign that is this poignant and relevant to current events. It's a shame there's so few, but what's there is amazing in my opinion.

Not current events maan.0.0.Iwo Jima, World war II, 1945! Very relevant though.

Ofcourse! And me thinking it was about the middle east, how silly.

its ok to not comment...

distasteful.

I suppose Reuters etc are fast becoming ad agencies too, but blurring the lines between reportage and oped like this doesn't seem so smart. It's not like there aren't real pics they could have used.

on the Iwo Jima angle:

wasn't there a campaign very similar to this a few months back, also for a news org... the puppet soldiers?

at least it was dusty (it is meant to be a desert, after all):
