Independence Ad Leaves Boston Dailies Poles Apart

From our Local Dailies DisADvantage desk

The Polish Cultural Institute has reached up from the Big Town to run this full-page ad in today’s Boston Globe as part of the country’s celebration of 100 years of independence.

Except not you, Boston Herald.

Once again the thirsty local tabloid gets the air from an advertiser that thinks Boston is a One-Daily Town.

Of course, if this keeps up, it likely will be.

Hark! The Herald! (Preview Edition II)

From our Walt Whitman desk

The Boston Herald will be doing some celebrating itself and singing itself tomorrow, thanks to a return trip to The Newseum’s Top Ten Front Pages hit parade.

Opening Week

Look no further than today’s front pages to find out what time it is. Fields of dreams, players in action and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch‘s reliable weatherbird all provide the answer. For most papers, play ball means baseball. For the Press-Citizen, it means golf. The Daily Journal stands out not only for its baseball-themed nameplate, but for a cover story and graphic on growing old in prison.

Note that both New York tabloids were hits, which is more than the Yankees can say about their home opener. Can’t wait to see the Big Town tabs tomorrow.
