From CNN :
The editor of Golfweek magazine was replaced Friday after the publication’s January 19 issue featured a cover with a noose — referencing a controversial comment made earlier this month by a Golf Channel anchor regarding golfer Tiger Woods.
The new editor, Jeff Babineau, called the cover a “regretful error” in a magazine statement announcing that editor Dave Seanor has been replaced, effective immediately.
“We apologize for creating this graphic cover that received extreme negative reaction from consumers, subscribers and advertisers across the country,” said William P. Kupper Jr., president of Turnstile Publishing Co. “We were trying to convey the controversial issue with a strong and provocative graphic image. It is now obvious that the overall reaction to our cover deeply offended many people. For that, we are deeply apologetic.”
The cover, with a picture of a noose, says, “Caught in a noose: Tilghman slips up, and Golf Channel can’t wiggle free.”
Though the buck apparently stopped with Seanor, I have a sneaking suspicion there’s an art director out there who won’t be so quick to list recent experience at Golfweek on his resume.
