Ruper Murdoch’s apology letter, set in Life Roman. Given the context, is this the right typeface to try and appear warm, apologetic and relatable? Sure, “life” is in the name of the font, but perhaps a friendlier, more human sans-serif would have made this (seemingly hollow) apology feel a bit more meaningful. 
For what it’s worth, at least he didn’t set it in Papyrus.

    Fonts are a serious business. That said, jokes about fonts are hilarious.

    Perhaps setting the letter in Comic Sans would convey just how humble Mr. Murdoch is today.:
