At around noon on Monday, the above picture was posted to Gawker. Gawker got it from Jim Romenesko’s blog. Jim Romenesko got it from Tim Windsor’s Twitter account. Apparently this is what the front page of the Baltimore Sun‘s website looked like Sunday night.
I checked recently and the site was back to normal, so I can’t verify it.
Anyway, it appears that at least one of the graphic designers involved was under the impression that computer screens can only reproduce three colors.
I hope the Sun made a lot of money off this spot. I mean, it almost looks like they were hacked.
