Time is running out to make a gift to Marketplace and help us meet our fall fundraiser goal of 2,000 donations by midnight Friday.
The NFL proves itself to be greedier than the greediness it has already demonstrated.
News broke this weekend that at least some of those ceremonies honoring the troops you’ve seen at games the past several years have been paid advertisements. Paid advertisements funded by taxpayer money.
To cite just one example, the New York Jets got $337,000 from the New Jersey National Guard over the course of four years for Hometown Hero segments.
Maybe it’s just me, but you’d sort of have hoped the NFL would do it—just because.
