Swatting Down Rumors Department

I saw this item on FishbowlDC and raised my eyebrows…

 A reader points out regarding Media Matters + Politico, “In case you didn’t know, Media Matters, for the first six weeks of Politico’s existence, was one of the few online advertisers for the Politico’s Web site. Rumor has it was a package deal, i.e. banner advertising + opinion column.”

Apparently rumor has it wrong. Karl Frisch of MediaMatters says that’s false, that MediaMatters did advertise in the early editions of The Politico, but there was no deal to include columns.
