Arthur S. Demoulas Hates the Boston Herald

July 31, 2014

Why else would he refuse to hire Boston Herald readers?

From today’s Boston Globe:

(There’s plenty of news coverage of the latest developments in the Demoulas Slapfight/Market Basket Rumpus here.)

Crosstown at the feisty local tabloid, the only appearance of the ad was in this news report.

Market Basket is running ads today seeking directors and assistant directors for its stores, and accountants, accounts payable/receivable associates, and grocery and perishable buyers in Tewksbury and Andover. The fairs are open to employees seeking new positions and the public.

 

Market Basket is running ads (note the plural), just not in the Herald. So Market Basket does not want to hire Herald readers? That just seems wrong.

The thirsty local tabloid did, however, get a consolation prize – this ad from an alphabet-soup coalition attacking Hamas.

Even that was bittersweet, though. As the hardreading staff noted, the Globe had the ad a week ago.


Boston Globe Ad-vantage: Hillary and Hamas

Interesting confluence of ads in the Boston Globe today.

And before you say, “Really, Hillary? Sam’s Club? Seekonk?” you should remember that Walmart/Sam’s Club sells a helluva lot of books every year.

Plus, it seems fitting that Madame Former Secretary should share an edition of the Globe with this ad (back page of the A section):

You’ll find the website for the alphabet-soup coalition here. The hardwatching staff will be interested to see if there’s a pro-Palestinian/anti-Israeli rejoinder in the stately local broadsheet tomorrow.

Meanwhile, crosstown at the Herald, ads (but not the two above) occupy roughly three of today’s first 30 pages. That’s hardly enough scratch to pay the Boston Herald Radio gerbils.

(To be sure graf comes next.)

To be sure, it’s mid-week mid-summer, but, man, they gotta be feeling some ad nauseum at the the thirsty local tabloid.
