Look --

It's like arguing that attending Burning Man de facto turns you into some kind of pyro.

Huh? :shock:

First, showing us an image does not create desire. 'Sexing' the image up and creating desire for it is what the advertising industry is all about. If it were as simple as showing a product, any idiot could do it. Packaging, presentation and context are what make images compelling in an advertising sense.

I kind of disagree. If this were the case, Rappers would not be an issue.

Maybe it is early, but I don't get your point. Explain?

that article is full of wacky contradictions.

One of the Authors early statements is that Americans are the best informed people on the planet. He then goes on to complain about how we don't know what's really going on due to a lack of media coverage.

pretty sloppy stuff
