Sad piggy, sad.

Just like the title says!

Sad piggy, sad.

Postby disgruntled » Mon Oct 24, 2011 4:26 am

This little piggy is sad.

This little piggy freelanced for a local piggy paper for years. It wasn't a big piggy paper, but it was a good one. At least it was, until the publisher yanked some editorial content because an advertiser complained. (Said advertiser featured prominently in said editorial content.)

The editor (go editor!) insisted that said copy be returned to the website with a correction notice addressing the advertiser's semi-legitimate complaint. Publisher disagreed. Editor took it to higher management and was immediately canned, perhaps due to use of a few bad words.

This little piggy walked, because the supposedly sacred wall between the advertising and editorial departments has a crack in it. The paper called and wants the piggy back, and this little piggy misses rolling in the newsprint scraps with all the other piggies. But she won't go back, no she won't, not when there's a crack in the wall that keeps the big bad money wolf out of the editorial content.

This little piggy is sad, and is wondering if any other little piggies out there have had to deal with the same issue.

TL;DR: Advertiser was allowed to affect editorial content. The piggies are sad and wondering if they overreacted, because nobody else seems to mind or care.

It's been happening for YEARS at my former newspaper, a major metro daily. I'll give you a hint: Sprint and Hallmark get a ton of positive-only coverage.

I agree with ya. I just about flipped my lid when ads started to appear on Page 1 and section fronts. Money talks, and it never shuts up.
