First of all, let me stipulate we in radio do the same thing.....Calling businesses and pitching them on sponsoring ads in favor of cops or against drugs..... It's a proven way to make money.
So in that context, I chuckled this morning when I opened the WDT (which I do subscribe to) and saw a display ad asking people to buy ads for a special fireman edition on October 26, to send a message to the "thousands" of firefighters who put their lives on the line in NNY.
Current debate over the expense and role of firefighters may juice the take, but be clear....Those selling the ads are the most adamant supporters of efforts to bust the fire cabal they see crippling Watertown.
They should run a special section where you can pay tribute to your local City Council...
