Best Media Hype 

Treasure Valley Weekly World Post

Editors' Picks

The phones at BWHQ started ringing early on the morning of April 1. Panicked callers asked if it was true that Boise Weekly owner/publisher Sally Freeman had sold out to media juggernaut Rupert Murdoch, who was changing the paper into a weekly bastion of conservative opinion and Hollywood gossip. Comments on Facebook and Twitter flew at a record pace as readers decried the loss of BW (though a few celebrated it). Funny how no one seemed to look at the date on the paper. Now, months later, and despite a steady flow of the tried-and-true Boise Weekly, we're still fielding questions about the buyout. Seriously, folks, we're still here. But you have to admit, we got you good.
