Hark! The Herald! (‘Party’ Pooper Edition)

April 5, 2013

From our Walt Whitman desk

Yesterday our feisty local tabloid celebrated itself and sang its Press Party with a full-page ad.

Got that – always smart, no-holds-barred discussions from fresh faces with their news noses on the ground and their fingertips on the pulse of the media machine?

Two observations: 1) That has to be painful; and 2) Could this be any more baldly aimed at WGBH’s Beat the Press?

Regardless, to promote tonight’s version of Press Party, the Herald coughs up not a full-page ad but a lousy quarter-page of  – what to call it? – promotorial.

Pikers.

Just in case you’re curious about the promotorial content:
