Drudge links to a statement from Mr. Eli Pariser, the head head of the Move On period organization, in which he gets all bitchy about the fee “error” for his shameful ad in the New York Times and says things like:
Now that the Times has revealed this mistake for the first time, and
while we believe that the $142,083 figure is above the market rate paid by most organizations, out of an abundance of caution we have decided to pay that rate for this ad. We will therefore wire the $77,083 difference to the Times tomorrow (Monday, September 24, 2007)
We call on Mayor Giuliani, who received exactly the same ad deal for
the same price, to pay the corrected fee also.
Oh Eli, Eli, why have you forsaken fees? Don’t wire the money. Nobody wires money anymore. Have one of your lawyers deliver it via private jet.
