  •  "mistake" refers to block buys (6+ / 0-)

    As many diaries have outlined a lot of advertising is bought wholesale, so to speak, and is not bought to run on any specific show. Can you fit an industry's media structure into a 2-paragraph press release? No, you use a generic "mistake" description.  

    C'mon. Let's let good things happen one time w/o presuming hidden mendacity behind every decision.

      Let's leave that to the wingers, too.

      •  -ish ... More CYA than CT (3+ / 0-)

        My reading of commonmass was more along the lines of, "there's a lot of CYA going on". Which I am sure is true. But I am also sure many companies did simply have ads run on Rush due to warehouse buying.

        But since so many companies are responding in such encouraging ways, why not give them the benefit of the doubt?

        turns out there really are a lot of nice, reasonable people living in America. I know how easy it is to be cynical about that. But OTOH look how many good things have happened the past year and a half internationally thanks to so many people becoming involved. All while the world is in an economic downturn.

        It's OK to let yourself feel good about this. Now let's go put the boot in while Rush boyo is down.
