As many of you have probably seen or heard, Matt Dibler, whose sexual misconduct forced his resignation from the Inspirations last year, took out (what some people thought appeared to be) a full-page ad in the most recent Singing News asking forgiveness for misbehavior that goes unspecified in the ad (it’s actually a full-page letter to the editor).
The Singing News could really expand on this idea as a new funding model in these tough times for old media. Call it the Hairshirt Special. Add it to the rate card and everything. According to this comment, a full-page ad goes for $2300. So ascending up the scale of impropriety as judged by the sg world, your standard-issue marital infidelity ought to be worth at least $2500. Returning to southern gospel after a stint in rehab or CCM: $3000. Sleeping with the spouse of another performer: $3500 (additional charges apply for being caught in flagrante delicto on the bus, in the green room, or any kind of Sunday school classroom). Someone got sticky fingers counting the take from the product table? $4000. Homosexual anything starts at $5000 and goes up from there.
