Beating a dead horse: The Chicago Sun Times media critic apparently can’t admit he was wrong about the August 22 issue of the New Yorker in which Target was the sole advertiser. He once more brings up the issue as an example of the apocalypse.
You’ll recall, of course, that in that issue of the New Yorker there was no editorial involvement by the advertiser. There was no product placement. There was no church-state violations. ASME could find no ethical problem with the New Yorker, but rather lightly slapped them on the wrist with a “technical” violation.
Dude, move on. Maybe you can blow a gasket over 60 MInutes having a single advertiser this week?
