Irony, thy name is Parry

Boy, that’s rich. Today, Kate Parry tells us about her concern about the blurring of the line between news and advertising. In a column titled Line between news, ads is fraying in spots, Kate tells about how worrisome it is to her that some people might think a Santa Bear advertisement is an actual comic strip! Oh the horror!

Last Sunday, of course, Kate did all she could to blur the line between an actual journalist and a pernicious propagandist. Spotty can abide Santa Bear in a comic strip, but he can’t abide Katherine Kersten dressed as a journalist.

Which is the bigger fraud? Spotty reports and you decide.

Save your pontification, Kate. Who said irony was dead?
