Non-left-coast companies seem more often to abide by the rule that there is no such thing as bad publicity. It is said that Lord Beaverbrook rewarded the cartoonist Jak very well for a cartoon involving the Duke of Edinburgh, Beaverbrook and a number of Yeoman Warders. The caption was, IIRC:
"The Express is a bloody awful newspaper" said the Duke.
"Ah well," said Lord B as they trotted him off to the Tower, "At least he reads it or he wouldn't know it was a bloody awful newspaper."
