Last week I pointed out the front page ad of the Des Moines Register that made it appear an ad for Barack Obama was editorial content.
Check out today’s Manchester Union Leader front page, in which the Obama re-election campaign has again purchased the bulk of the front-page real estate in a state where a Republican primary is being held.
About the blogger
Bob Collins has been with Minnesota Public Radio since 1992, emigrating to Minnesota from Massachusetts. He was senior editor of news in the ’90s, ran MPR’s political unit, created the MPR News regional website, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day laments that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
NewsCut is a blog featuring observations about the news. It provides a forum for an online discussion and debate about events that might not typically make the front page. NewsCut posts are not news stories.
