Cape Times News From Every Angle

The Cape Times in South Africa ran a print advertising campaign in 2010 featuring Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon on July 20, 1969, the “tank man” who stopped a procession of tanks near Tiannenmen Square in Beijing on June 5, 1989, Nelson Mandela congratulating Springbok captain Francois Pienaar at the Rugby World Cup in 1995, and Muntadhar al-Zaidi throwing a shoe at George Bush during a press conference in Baghdad, December 14, 2008. Each print ad represented a fresh angle in news coverage. “In-depth news investigated from every angle. Know all about it.”
