"Haider, who voted against a parliamentary motion to lower the age of consent for homosexuals, had presented himself as a family man who drank sparingly. But after the car crash it was revealed that he had been driving at twice the speed limit, his blood alcohol level had been four times the legal limit, and he had spent his final hours in a gay bar in Klagenfurt, the capital of the southern state where he was governor."
"Not one editor and, so far as I know, not one reporter has lost his or her job or even faced formal reprimand as a result of the McCann coverage. There has been no serious inquest in the industry and no organised attempt to establish what went wrong, while no measures have been taken to prevent a repetition. Where there have been consequences, as with the Tapas Seven, they have come from outside and been reported to the public with the most grudging economy."
"If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been paying attention, online advertising, viral memes and social media can each be wildly expensive, sadly ineffective, and impossibly difficult to measure too. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s partly because there are poor practitioners of any craft, but largely because these are such new marketing disciplines there is very little known about how to do them well. At Pollenizer weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve begun reviewing the ways of measuring the effectiveness of social media campaigns, and, wellÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ picture a dusty, deserted road and a tumbleweed blowing in the wind."
