Half agree with you. Why not a HS focusing on marketing, sans advertising? Completely agree with you re: "The Pitch." The "ideas," tag lines, concepts, etc. presented by the agencies on the segments that I watched were so lame, they made the output of celebrity publicists like Lizzie Grubman look like downright strategic!
But she did give you a strategy for dealing with jerks: "Move on." I don't disagree that all those folks should have called you back. In fact, I agree completely, even vehemently: It's only good business, because some day those people might actually need you. And it's common decency. That said, we can drive ourselves crazy, wondering why they didn't call us back and devising new ways to get them to do so. I've done that. It's a time-suck, a brain-suck and it sucks! When we do so, we're giving these jerks WAY too much power. So move onto the next target. They're more deserving of your counsel, your ideas and your comedy!

Great post, which perfectly captures all that's wrong with that cover. Many of us thought Ms. Brown might bring Newsweek to new lows, but she has exceeded all expectations with this one. The bad news is that this has generated so much coverage via social media--and now I've contributed to that. The good news, I hope, is that newshounds of good taste and with any modicum of decency have now decided never to try the new "News"week.

Fully anticipate that Moed will be nominated for a Golden Globe later this morning. As for Dorothy, fully anticipate that whomever--or whatever--that was will be nominated for a Razzie!
