No Charter ad in this week’s Worcester Magazine

posted by Mike on June 5th, 2008

For months now, Charter Communications has been advertising in Worcester Magazine. They’ve bought the entire back cover and the bottom of the front cover, which must have made them one of the biggest advertisers.

Last week, WoMag ran a story about Charter’s controversial plan to monitor its internet users’ habits for commercial purposes. Both the New York Times and a Massachusetts congressman had previously noted this story, making it something of a big deal.

This week, a-la-ka-zam: No Charter ads in Worcester Magazine.

Compare and contrast: December 20, 2007 vs. June 5, 2008.

    Corporate retribution? Thank goodness WCCA TV does not have to rely on corporate ads to support it’s free speech platform. Good for WoMag for having the courage to present an honest piece.
