Spadea: The Sequel

N. Christian Anderson

The Oregonian is unrepentant enough about the criticism it got for running a front page wrap-around ad (known as a "spadea") on Sunday opposed to Measures 66 and 67 that it did it again in today's paper.

One distinction in today's spadea is that the words "PAID ADVERTISEMENT" are bolder and larger than in Sunday's version (a concession that new O publisher N. Christian Anderson III said in the comments section of Blue Oregon should have been done the first time).

Meanwhile, the supporters of Measures 66 and 67 paid for an ad on pages 28-29 inside today's WW that starts "Wondering what's happened to the Oregonian? You're not alone."
