Ugly Online Ads: The female newscaster
Her next assignment: report on money. This photo appears in ads selling low rate mortages to work at home money schemes. She filed this report right after the acai berry assignment. Not as shocking.
It should seem too good to be true. And in fact it is a bit. The "report" is a bit misleading because it is for an auction site. I doubt you could ever get the Ipad for under $25 since this ad would increase demand and thereby inflate the price of iPads on the site. Why this is considered a consumer alert beats me.
It would be an alert if she had said "Obama wants every American to have an iPad." No comment from the McCain or Clinton camps.
