A fun article in a recent the New Yorker about a radio station in New York City mentions in passing that Eliot Spitzer the NY attorney general is currently investigating a bunch of radio stations for taking payola. I’m kind of glad, if surpised, that there are still consumer protection laws on the books about that.
Meanwhile bloggers can now take payola, see over here.
This article about blogger payola is wonderfully ironic once you notice the amazing assortment of advertising techniques in use by it’s web site.
Welcome to last year.
Spitzer’s running for governor, so he’s doing a bunch of really popular stuff right now.
None of that should detract from the fact that he’s doing a bunch of really popular stuff right now.
