advertising and other stuff. no, really.

They wouldn’t print it if it wasn’t true.

Newspapers—the last bastion of mudslinging. Well, there’s TV and the internet for that, but there’s just something about seeing an ad right there in your face complaining about a competitor. Here I was ready to give up on newspapers this weekend when I opened today’s Connecticut Post. First, it had the mano y mano battle between Cablevision and WABC, then the surreal story about local hero gone good gone bad, now this Google attack ad. Nice!

Well, from a factual standpoint, not sure about the affidavit part, but Google doesn’t leave me with ink on my hands when I’m done using it. The claims however that a crash or a hacker would threaten public notices online? (Read the fine print.) Hey, I trust a survey in a newspaper by the National Newspaper Association that says newspapers are read by almost nearly everyone—weekly, don’t you?
