Re: [APD] Truth in Advertising
IMHO if a publication could reasonably be expected to know that the content
of an advertisement is questionable as to accuracy then they should not run
the ad without investigating the company/individual wanting to purchase the ad.
And if that investigation turns up information that the company is not
reputable, they don't sell ad space.
And I have a hard time believing that refusal to run the ad would be any
different than the editor not running a story suggesting that it was ok to put a
Copperbanded Butterfly in a 10 gallon tank with a box filter, which I
over-heard a clerk at a store actually sell a grandmother buying a birthday
present for her granddaughter.
A note, this person is operating out of Toronto and doesn''t accept credit
cards. Hmmm. Wasn't someone selling things for really good prices, taking
orders, not accepting credit cards and never sending out merchandise that posts
were made about last year, operating out of Ottawa?
Velly velly interesting.
