Required Friday Reading

MediaPost's Over the Line blog this morning was guest-written by George Simpson, who ground out a navel-gazing piece that looks dressed-up to discuss advertising ethics and the current ad climate, but seems more directed at stirring up reaction from ad people.

Oh, yeah. And drawing attention to George H. Simpson, who claims to be an "Expert in Advertising and Internet Trade Media Relations" but admits to being a PR practitioner.

The well written column's first sentence is a great quote from Randall Rothenberg, "Advertising is the makeup on the public face of capitalism.” And MediaPost calls Over The Line "A Lighthearted Look At Advertising and Media." Take both of those into consideration.
