Shell Oil and Mayor DaleyI notice Shell Oil is a prominent advertiser on AVweb. I also notice they support Mayor Daley as the "Presenting Sponsor" of the Chicago Air Show in August, presented by the Mayor's Office of Special Events. Your readers should know Shell is playing both sides of the fence.
AVweb responds ...
This shouldn't surprise anyone. Major corporations sometimes fund both sides of political campaigns to maintain connections no matter who wins. Putting advertising in both AVweb and the Chicago Air Show keeps Shell's name and products in the minds of aviation consumers.
