Oregonian: "Please don't read our editorials back to us"

Portland's daily newspaper gets into it with the guy who writes most of the nauseating political ads in town.

Why did the Oregonian write an explanation to Carole Smith? Is she involved in the political campaign? How does that square with her official duties?

Mark Weiner: "You mean our ad copy could be misconstrued as an endorsement from the Oregonian? Why, I'm as shocked as you are!"

Doesn't seem so unreasonable to me. The O turned down ad money because they thought the ad would misrepresent their position. Kind of a pleasant surprise.
