Blurring the line between advertising and editorializing

MLN's TParty has a good piece discussing the recent firing of the Courant's consumer-advocate columnist, George Gombossy. Here's a link to George's new website.

Imagine something like this happening - someone has an advertising budget and they have undue influence over the editorial page?! Thankfully something like that could never happen in Cheshire!

I wish Mr. Gombossy the best of luck.

The Town of Cheshire publishes advertisments at various time in the Cheshire Herald, as well as the New Haven Register, Meriden RJ, Waterbury Rep-Am, as well as the Courant. Publishind these legal notices in local papers with certain circulations is required by Chesire Town regs (as well as most municipalities in the Country). If this advertising is a conflict, change the requirements for public notices.
