Letter: Does Barry Know Newspapers Are One of the Biggest Telemarketing Users?

Share this article:
Regarding Scott Hovanyetz's article on the flap caused by Dave Barry publishing the ATA's phone number ("Dave Barry's Column No Joke to the ATA," Sept. 15) -- has anyone considered how many subscribers to the Miami Herald (or all the other papers his syndicated column runs in) were acquired through outbound T/M?


Newspaper publishers certainly know the power of telemarketing. It might be an interesting fact to run down and to show to Mr. Barry and his outraged supporters.
