Daily Mirror Marks World Press Freedom Day 2014


For a newspaper that rarely rocks the Lankan media boat, I thought that Daily Mirror’s front page marking World Press Freedom Day 2014 made a pretty bold statement. The paper had a unique, faux front page, where all the text and images were flipped, and made to look the wrong way around. (However, the inside had the proper front page which was the correct/mirror image).

A message, white text on a red background, at the bottom of the faux front page said,

“Only true freedom of the press can turn things the right way around”
