Mark Sanford is a hypocrite. Years of preaching holier-than-thou family values. Then he takes off to Argentina on Fathers' Day weekend to be with his lover - leaving his wife and kids behind. Some family values, Gov Sanford. Spare us all. Resign. Frankly, I don't care who you sleep with. It's your hypocrisy that makes me sick.

That means brands need to insert themselves in the dialogue with people - in a highly relevant way, of course. Marketers need to reach people in new ways - by being where they are - in social networks and blogs - and engaging in a dialogue. Monologue marketing is not going to work in new media either.

Enjoy. :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3qltEtl7H8
