Is the ironic that you just served a four-year term? I also thank you for all of the enjoyable and thought provoking content you have given us in that time. At least you made a full four years. Hope you find gratifying, interesting and monetarily favorable pursuits. I look forward to seeing you pop up somewhere where intelligent discourse of our business is encouraged.
You ask "what am I missing here?" You're very obviously missing a lot if you equate Hannity's output with "an anything-goes environment in which all manner of violence and almost all manner of language and sex."
Thanks for all your great work.
Damn. Just damn.
What Ken said. I've also seen some howler typos in the last week. MP is teetering.
Without Grafield and Lippert, I'm not sure what part MediaPost will continue to play in my life. Might as well get rid of Gord now, too...
Barbara--! What a finale! Your commentary has always been a top favorite pop culture read! Your Facebook feed is not enough for your fans! Can't wait to read where you get scooped up next!
As usual, Barbara, another terrific column. So sorry it is your last here. But there is so much more for you to say, and since you always say it so well, there has to be another venue worthy of your talents. I hope we see you elsewhere in print very soon.
A beautiful final column. What a loss to readers. Congratulations on fine work.
Barbara, thank you for years of enjoyable provocation, all the way back to Adweek. Much appreciated.
Buyer's remorse comes early. In the can doesn't have the immediacy as it used to. Things are coming out of the can faster than you can stack them.
So Barb, are you and Bob BOTH leaving? I clicked the link that you alluded to in your story, and saw that he's bidding HIS swan song, TOO!That's REALLY a shame and we will truly miss you both! As one who came from print media (a long time ago in a place far, far away!), too, it's a sad--but inevitible--truth. I wish you both well!~TW
Encore, encore and touche!!!Please keep us posted Barbara!!!
Have really enjoyed your writing, Barbara - always fun, lively and informative. Wish you the best.(...and what was that a snippet of the Beatles "All You Need Is Love" in that Aniston commercial?)
Always enjoyed your columns, Bob. Good fortune with all future endeavors.
Oh, no, not you, too! Bob's and your columns were my only link to my couple of decades in the agency business, where I worked with so many sharp people who were so funny, cynical, thoughtful, creative and sarcastic, all at once! They helped me stay (relatively) sane and optimistic. I'm sure I speak for many of your fans when I tell you that your delightful ruminations will be greatly missed.
Sadness! Hope your eloquence finds a new worthy outlet!!
And some of them actually like shopping in stores. More here...http://pjlehrer.blogspot.com/2016/04/how-passionate-are-you-about-shopping.html
You get a standing ovation. Nothing is free, Freedom is not free.
This is one of those; ... "Y'know, if we can figure out a way to have the two front wheels on our cars actually turn, and maybe have that controlled by someone inside the car, using some sort of 'wheel' thingie, maybe we won't have to always go whichever direction the car is facing" ... moments.
That 3% figure sounds very tiny and potentially insignificant, but how many sources make up that 3%? If the answer is 100,000 and these happen to account for 15% of all Internet traffic, then it's a more scary situation than the 3% bad guy finding might suggest.
Disingenious for anyone to say it is simply a 3% problem. It is excellent that this has been called to task, is being examined and acted upon, but the numbers are the numbers. There is a ton of ad fraud, and 3% of sources are just causing a ton of it.
Behold the power of the boycott. More here...http://pjlehrer.blogspot.com/2017/02/all-boycotts-and-bumps-are-not-created.html
