I bought a Chicago Tribune to look for the FULL PAGE AD

. . . and was surprised as heck to find it about 3/4 way through the first section.
No other mention of it anywhere in the paper though (have only skimmed thus far).
Looking forward to this being laid to rest.

According to the Trib's rate card that ad cost $95,130 to run. That is expensive BS.

What, no mass panic or protests in the streets?

Is that Metro only or all edition coverage ? (suburb, regional, national)

I don't get the Monday paper as part of my delivery subscription. May have to pick one up while I am out later- I am sure it will be a "keeper!" ;)

'fil: I priced general circulation, open rate. That's $755 an inch times 126 inches. Political ads are generally charged at the open rate in order to head off any charges of favoritism.

How does payment usually work? Cash up front, or is there a possibility that they'll get stiffed for $95K.

Political ads are always paid up front. Politicians and political causes are notoriously deadbeat.

I don't know whether it was metro.
Nobody in this whole city seems to have noticed the ad, or otherwise seems to be aware of the conspiracy, or had any sort of reaction to seeing this ad other than "yup, lotta people wanna get Barack."
Huge waste of money on the part of the perps.
They severely misjudged the paper's audience.

I always wondered why the department stores put those bra ads in the A section instead of the features section where the wimmen read. You know, the garden club, the funnies and Ann Landers. Them bra ads is where the national news is, where the men read, and most gentlemen I know don't need to wear no bra. Hmmm.

Just because you think they don't need no bra, doesn't mean they think like you think.
