Newspaper ads praise Duke team
For the second time in less than a week, a Duke University graduate has bought a newspaper advertisement praising the Duke lacrosse team. Today's full-page ad is to appear in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The News & Observer of Raleigh and the Durham Herald-Sun, according to a news release. The ad is also to run in tomorrow's Wall Street Journal and a pair of lacrosse magazines. The $400,000 advertisements, paid for by an anonymous Oklahoma oil businessman who graduated from Duke, praise the lacrosse players and their families for "standing tall during extraordinarily difficult circumstances."
