Blinders? Check.

The always witless World Association of Newspapers really does it this time. In their desire to defend print — over updating and preserving journalism — they came out with a new ad campaign that says:

Picture 22

Which says: We will continue to give you a one-way product that doesn’t listen to you and lets you do just one thing: turn the damned page.

Another ad makes fun of dumb things people say and adds this quote from the Economist: “Newspapers are an endangered species.” Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Yes, that’s a good one. Newspaper companies? Health as can be.
