Shock: Not Only Did NYT Not Give Coservative Advocacy Groups A Discount, They Refused To Run The Ads At All

In-kind contribution.

Jason wrote earlier:

Since we now know that the NYT charged MoveOn one rate and a pro-war group another. Have they been doing this same thing for some time. Did they give John Kerry discounted ad rates versus George Bush in 2004, what about Dem. Congressional candidates versus Republicans?

I wouldn't think that the NYT would be so stupid as to discount one
group over another in their ad rates based on their political
affiliation, but unfortunately now we know that they are in fact that stupid.

The question is: How long has this been going on for, and how does
it relate to in-kind political contributions.

Is this phenomenon limited to just Pinch and the NYT or does it
extend to other newspapers. Has the fourth estate become so corrupt
and failed so badly at their mission that they are openly taking
sides with not only their editorial policy but now their advertising
policy as well? I'll leave the News policy for another debate.

Is the cost of accessing the media now dependent on the content of
our message? Do we need a fairness doctrine for print advertising
as well as the Democrats claim we need it for radio content?

Tip of the iceberg, I'm thinking.
