Today on the Menu, I was the guest, which means I turned each of the media stories into advertising stories. Like this Times story about how Heathrow airport hired an author to sit in one of their terminals for a week and write things down, and then they’re turning his notes into a book that they’ll give away to 10,000 travelers. Luck on that, airport.
Also, Fox News Channel’s “The Glenn Beck Program” had it’s highest rated week of all times, according to TVNewser. I bet Allergan (maker of Restasis), Ally Bank (a unit of GMAC Financial Services), Best Buy, Broadview Security, CVS, Re-Bath, Travelocity, Wal-Mart, ConAgra, GEICO, Lawyers.com, Men’s Wearhouse, Procter & Gamble, Progressive Insurance, RadioShack, Roche, SC Johnson, Sanofi-Aventis, Sargento, and State Farm are pissed they pulled out.
We’ll have more on both these stories later.
