Publisher confuses stupid for sassy

A publication in Florida tells political candidates they have to buy ads if they want the privilege of being covered in its pages.

Wrote the publisher of the Conch Color:
"Freedom of the press does not ensure campaign coverage, just a level playing field. And you have to pay to play."
Setting aside the poor judgment and childish boasting for a second, doesn't this make the publication a political mailer under state law?
