As the hardtracking staff recently noted, the Boston Herald has launched a new web feature called State of the Arts. We wrote at the time, “The feisty local tabloid’s new State of the Arts blog appears to be the paper’s entry into the commerce journalism racket,” a reference to several posts that had bylines from local arts groups.
The hardtracking staff will try to contact the Herald to ask if those last two posts are paid placements. But we don’t expect the Herald will respond, most likely because they don’t appreciate the efforts of the hardreading staff at It’s Good to Live in a Two-Daily Town.
We’re happy to report we were wrong! . . .
