Written with a forked tongue?

From craigslist:

"TMCnet, the leading business-to-business Web site serving the IP communications and related technology market, has an opening for a senior-level editor in their Norwalk, CT office."

But further down in the ad:

"We believe in promotion from within . . ."

So either TMCnet doesn't actually believe it, or outside applicants needn't apply, which begs the question, Why do companies intent on promoting from within even bother to place want ads?
