Dennis & Callahan criticized for "election postponed" joke

Tue Nov 4 16:39:56 EST 2008

By rights, the Mass Attorney General should haul Entercom into court
under the statute regarding interfering with elections. Entercom would
love it, of course, because it would be GREAT free publicity, and all
of the Entercom Boston stations would milk it for all it's
worth--which would be a lot. There would be added publicity on Channel
2's Beat the Press and maybe Jon Keller would rise up in righteous
indignation on WBZ--taking care, of course, not to mention any
competitive call letters. In the end, there probably would be no
conviction and everybody except the duped voters and the people and
ballot questions they would have voted for would go away happy.
