Anzac edition of Financial Review runs with fake headlines

THE AUSTRALIAN Financial Review's editor-in-chief Michael Stutchbury has apologised to readers for a series of embarrassing production errors with the newspaper 's Anzac Day edition, and admitted it will result in a "revenue loss".

Copies of the paper on sale in Western Australia have appeared with cover lines such as "World is fukt" and "The legacy of Galippoli"(sic).

Twitter users have drawn attention to another page-one misspelling of the Gallipoli Anzac Day campaign, this time as "Gallipolli", and the incomprehensible subheading: "Army chief here".

On the east coast, copies on sale in newsagents do not have a barcode printed on the back page, which means vendors have not been able to carry out a transaction.
