Not every day you see a city taking out a full-page NYT ad on its behalf. pic.twitter.com/WIL6y8yVOf

Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday.
“Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000.
“You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues.
