Is it a coincidence that ADN decided to discontinue The Voice of the Times half-page just at the time the FBI investigation of lobbyists-politicians in Alaska resulted in indictments of several, including VECO's Allen, who has already pled guilty?
I ask because I read that The Voice of the Times has been called "the Veco section of the Daily News" by the blog editor at The Daily News-Miner, insinuating it's been used as a political ad in the past.
The timing is a coincidence. A five-year contract between the Daily News and the Voice of the Times expired this month. Federal prosecutors announced the guilty plea of Allen, the owner of the Voice of the Times, last month. The Daily News did not have the right to terminate the contract to publish the Voice of the Times before the termination date, but we did have the option not to renew the agreement.
Veco bore 100 percent of the costs of producing and publishing the Voice of the Times, so it doesn't seem like a stretch to describe it as a Veco section.
