Energy Bigwigs Dodge Two-Daily Town Investigation!

June 27, 2015

As you splendid readers might (or probably don’t) remember, the hardreading staff a couple of days ago (people everywhere: please note the of) detailed the advertising efforts of two front groups for energy concerns: one natural gas, the other nuclear power.

Diligent as always, we wrote to both mouthpieces for more information.

To the fine folks at The Coalition to Lower Energy Costs, we sent this:

Dear Sir or Madam,

[We] write the blog It’s Good to Live in a Two Daily Town, and [we] noticed that you ran an ad in today’s Boston Herald but not the Boston Globe.

Might you share your advertising strategy with [our] splendid readers?

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
[The Hardreading Staff]

 

To the fine folks at Nuclear Matters, we sent this:

Dear Sir or Madam,

[We] write the blog It’s Good to Live in a Two Daily Town, and [we] noticed that in today’s Boston Globe you ran the same ad twice.

Might you share your advertising strategy with [our] splendid readers?

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
[The Hardworking Staff]

 

Thirty-six hours later?

Nothing!

These guys are on the run! We’re thinking Kickstarter for our travel expenses.

P.S. The natural gas front group did run an ad in yesterday’s Globe Capital section.
