: I was just reading Josh Marshall on my RSS reader and found this odd though apparently quite candid sentence: “Marvelous, marvelous piece on Dick Cheney by Frank Foer and Spencer Ackerman in the new issue of The New Republic. I can’t say enough good things about this piece. Advertisement.”
My, my, I thought… Could this be Josh’ tongue-in-cheek self-deprecating joke about his slathering over the story? Could it be that he has found new frontiers in blog advertising?
No, if you look at the post itself, there just happens to be an ad there and the disclaimer “Advertisement” just happens to pop up in the RSS feed at a coincidental local.
A blogeek chortle only Dave Winer would appreciate.
