The Death of Advertising


advertising all about the money

I’m chasing a story and getting lots of references for my research.  Washington Post, blocked unless I subscribe.  Wall Street Journal blocked unless I subscribe.  We’ve come to the point now that web advertising is not working.  I ran my web site for 30 years “ad free”.  Why spam your customers? Are we witnessing the death of online advertising?

Or stupid. So each time someone says that, you know they’re either just lying or they’re stupid.

He’s done, he’s done. There’s no question about that, he’s done!


I laughed so hard when I first saw this I thought I would wet myself!  But you know, it’s true — the media is way over the top when they slander Donald Trump!

Shortly after this video came out, I offered a $1,000 Amazon Gift Card for anyone who could accurately provide the number of times the media lied in this video — BOOM, the video was removed and the account blocked on YouTube!  Who removed it, or why, I do not know.

MEDIA CENSORING: anyone who doesn’t believe that the big sites are censoring conservative content consider this:
