The Worcester Telegram is out with its explanation for how it came to run a full-page ad by IBEW Local 103 yesterday that urged "Worchester" residents to vote for Joe Kennedy III:
The city of Worcester was misspelled in a full-page political advertisement published on Page A16 of the Sunday Telegram. The client provided the camera-ready artwork for the advertisement, which included the mistake. It was not built by the T&G or Gannett Company Inc.
So nobody at the Telegram actually looks at their ad copy. Good to know.
The union is headquartered off the Southeast Expressway in Dorchester. The ad supported a candidate who had earlier issued a press release criticizing his opponent for ignoring several Massachusetts towns, including three that literally disappeared in the 1930s when their valley was flooded for the Quabbin Reservoir.
