Inappropriate advert

You carried an advertisement for Cable TV, showing the explosion at the World Trade Centre in New York, on page 11 of your business section yesterday.

The importance of live broadcasts in transmitting the full horror of this tragedy cannot be underestimated.

But publishing an advert using this event at the point when thousands were dying in horrifying circumstances can best be described as morbid. Indeed, it is totally inappropriate.
