Worse than I thought: Crawdaddy runs partisan political ads as news

Being stretched so thin where content is gotten on the run comes at the cost of quality and there is nothing half cocked in that. I hit a nerve over at the Sun Herald folks:

From the I’m-not-in-it-for-the-money file: There is no payola from Pickering ~ Paul Hampton Crawdaddy Blog

That is good to know but I also would thoughtfully posit it also is worse in a respect too. The Sun Herald is running Stacey Pickering’s political ads for free and calling it news but don’t take it from little ol’ half-cocked me. Paul clue(less) us in on that:

When asked who is running the campaign and making the calls on the ad purchases, he said it was Pickering himself.

This isn’t the Senate race,” he said. “There isn’t campaign staff, it’s just Stacey.”

He said the advertising is just a pre-emptive strike against anyone contemplating a challenge in next year’s election

Anyone for Tea?

I am, I didn’t have to waste my time unraveling any of it.

Rest assured there will be no partisan political ads masquerading as blog entries here at Slabbed New Media, not unless I’m paid and that would be disclosed. Thank you for playing.
