A Long Shot Way to Save Your Local Paper


This is a story that gives new meaning to the phrase, “an audience of one.”

It turns out President Biden is known to be a regular reader of his hometown paper the Delaware News Journal. Since that’s the case, a number of special interest groups have taken to advertising in the paper as a way to get their message directly to the president.

According to Politico, more than a dozen such public affairs ads have been run in the News Journal in the period between mid-September and mid-November. The Biden presidency is good for business at the News Journal.

President Murphy anyone?
