Izzit Just Me Or …

... does every online story in the Coeur d'Alene Press open up to paid advertising of quixotic Ron Nilson and his Sancho Panza, Robert Ketchum? I don't have a subscription for news -- if there's any -- behind the Brand X firewall. But I just clicked on the top 6 or 7 stories online that are free to all. Most have an ad for either Nilson or Ketchum in their bid for the North Idaho College Board of Trustees. Some have ads for both. That's either a good advertising buy. Or extra good ad placement by an accommodating newspaper.

Question: What do you think?
