After getting egg all over their faces, the management of The Courant scrambled Monday to get something in the paper about Sleepy’s so they could prove they weren’t protecting one of their biggest advertisers.
In their rush to print, you will notice several things that were in my column that I had posted on this website that aren’t in The Courant’s article this morning, that was put together by Business Editor Dan Haar -an award winning, Â ethical journalist, a great reporter, businesss editor, columnist, and a friend of mine (not to mention a great father). I wonder what pressures were exerted on him by Jeff and Rich – or they simply made Naedine do their dirty work.
What was left out was the the Better Business Bureau, which has had hundreds of complaints about Sleepy’s, tells consumer to be careful dealing with this company because of continuing complaints about the same issues it has been receiving for years. The BBB report also notes that Sleepy’s paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and restitutions in New York and New Jersey.
Maybe the new motto of The Courant could be “advertise with us and we will keep your back covered.”
