Boston Globe Gets Ad-vantage from MCCA

From our Late to the Party Line desk

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority has a $1.1 billion plan to expand the Boston Convention and Exposition Center  (details/downside here), so it only makes sense to spend the taxpayers’ money to improve the MCCA’s image among . . . taxpayers.

Thus, this full-page ad in yesterday’s Boston Globe (it also ran on Tuesday), signed by all the usual suspects. Paul Guzzi, Pat Moscaritolo, Tom Glynn, – c’mon down!

On neither day did the ad run in the Boston Herald.

But the feisty local tabloid had its revenge in today’s edition, which features this ad – exclusive!

Ha! Take that, stately local broadsheet!

Meanwhile, memo to the MCCA: If you’re going to waste our money, at least waste it equally, yeah?
