  1. The “media” always were product placement billboards. Only it is not obvious to observers immersed in the “culture”. The media used to depict smokers. They did not promote a single brand, but that way they promoted smoking. they do not promote a certain brand of suit, but they never show a president in underwear. They promote suits, for “serious” people. They promote artificial sweeteners, used in pig fattening, by putting a certain spin on each and every discussion about food or obesity. They promote themselves, last not least. Or have I ever read an article asking me NOT to buy their paper???
