    During the last weekend before the 2018 midterms, the media decided an ad by President Trump was "racist" and therefore refused to air it. CNN, NBC, Facebook and even Fox News took that position. The "star" of this commercial is Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican citizen who has repeatedly entered America illegally and who shot two California police deputies dead in 2014. In January, Fox News aired footage of Bracamontes boasting in court: "I don't (expletive) regret that (expletive). The only thing that I (expletive) regret is that I (expletive) killed two. I wish I (expletive) killed more of those...

  • Do white people dominate the outdoors?' MEC apologizes for using only white models

    10/25/2018 4:58:08 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 87 replies
    In a surprising apology, Mountain Equipment Co-op, the Canadian outdoor apparel giant, admitted to helping advance the “vastly incorrect notion” that the outdoors is for white people only, criticizing decades worth of its own advertisements and catalogues for depending almost exclusively on white models to sell wares. “Outside is for everyone,” MEC CEO David Labistour said in an open letter Monday. “It’s time we acted like it.” The letter — titled “Do white people dominate the outdoors?” — includes a collage of old MEC ads: white people hiking and biking and rock climbing and cross-country skiing; white people in khaki...

    A political action committee said Friday that it won’t pull a widely condemned radio ad that suggests white Democrats will lynch African-Americans if they win in midterm elections in Arkansas next month. Vernon Robinson with Black Americans for the President’s Agenda said Friday that the group won’t cancel the radio ad running in the Little Rock area in support of Republican U.S. Rep. French Hill. He said the group also won’t pull a similar ad he says is airing in Missouri. The ads in both states are scheduled to run through Friday, Robinson said. “There’s no plan to change the...

    Everywhere the opposition has ads poured out about how heartless the evil, mean Republicans are. They want to take healthcare away from poor, poor people with preexisting illnesses. All they care about are big corporate insurance companies. They are dirty, and bought and payed for by them. If you are a good and decent person with any kind of heart at all you will vote for the good and decent Democrat, who cares about people and doesn't want to kill them. Besides, really frightening, is the possibility that you or someone you care about could be, or eventually become one...
  • GOP hammers ‘mob’ message for midterms, as Dems howl over label

    Liberal protesters – egged on by Democratic politicians – are openly embracing a more confrontational and aggressive approach, banging on the doors of the Supreme Court, confronting lawmakers outside their offices and chasing GOP officials out of restaurants. And Republicans are quickly seizing on that spectacle to hammer a new midterm message, decrying the “mob” behavior and warning that Democrats would bring that mentality into the majority should they prevail in November's election.

    The “Gosnell” film producers hit another obstacle this week when the social media giant Facebook refused to run their ads. “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” will be in theaters beginning Oct. 12. Under-reported from the start, the film follows the true story of Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who murdered newborn babies and committed numerous other crimes inside his “house of horrors” abortion facility. It stars Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark”) and is directed by Nick Searcy (“The Shape of Water,” “Justified”). Producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have faced roadblocks from the start of their project,...

    Sweden's Advertising Ombudsman (RO) has criticized a Stockholm company for sexism after it used a popular meme alongside a recruitment advert. The image, known by online communities as 'Distracted Boyfriend Meme', is based on a stock photo of a man turning away from his appalled to girlfriend to look at an attractive woman. Swedish internet service provider Bahnhof used the image alongside a jobs advert; in their take on the meme, the boyfriend was turning away from "your current workplace" to stare at Bahnhof. Sweden's advertising watchdog RO has now ruled that the use of the meme was "gender-discriminatory", both...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A U.S. judge on Tuesday struck down a nearly century-old California law that banned handgun ads at gun shops, saying the state failed to show it would prevent suicides or crime. The 1923 law banned any handgun ads at gun shops that were visible from outside the store. State officials argued the ads would spur impulsive people to buy a handgun, and impulsive people are more prone to suicide and crime. The law, however, did not restrict ads for other firearms. Judge Troy Nunley in Sacramento noted in his ruling that gun shops could display a...

    When companies get in trouble over their advertisements, it usually happens quickly. In the case of Sherwin-Williams Co., it took more than a century. The paint maker is fighting a California court ruling that ordered it and two other companies to collectively pay hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for promoting lead paint over several decades, when they allegedly knew or should have known it was hazardous. The litigation has highlighted Sherwin-Williams ads dating back to 1904. Sherwin-Williams SHW, +0.50% and its co-defendants in July petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case, arguing that they were...

    The ongoing national anthem controversy -- and NFL players potential continuing protests -- might influence TV networks ad pricing in the early part of the season. Jeff Greenfield, COO C3 Metrics, a media measurement company, said in an email: "NFL CPMs [cost per thousand viewer prices] will likely drop in the first quarter of "Sunday Night Football" and "Monday Night Football" because large advertisers want to avoid controversy on those high-profile nights at all costs as [President] Trump will likely beat his twitter drum.” He added: “[This] will free up the inventory surrounding the national anthem, causing CPMs to drop...

    An American football star who sparked a furore by kneeling during the national anthem has been unveiled as the new face of a major advertising campaign. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will front Nike's "Just Do It" 30th anniversary campaign, reports said. In 2016 Kaepernick refused to stand for the anthem in protest at police violence against African-Americans. Many other players followed suit but the protest has divided the country. President Donald Trump has called players who "disrespect" the US flag "sons of bitches" and called for them to be sacked. The Nike adverts show Kaepernick with the...

    The idea of democracy is that voters will compare the candidates and select the better on the merits of their respective campaigns. But what if the outcome reflects better use of technology, independent of the merits? In 2012, Democrats celebrated the Obama campaign’s smarter use technology that helped lead to victory. But in 2018, the shoe was on the other foot, as the Trump campaign is being hailed for nimbler use of technology, specifically the “test, learn, adapt” approach that exemplifies Agile management.
