Look at this.
What follows is a NY Times media request from David Dunlap of the TImes to 911 family members. Dunlap is trying to create controversy where none exists. He has emailed the 911 families asking if the photo of a billboard for a TV show offends them (see below). Does this offend you?
The New York Times demands that we kiss the ring of jihadists. The New York Times, which wantonly shilled, promoted, advanced and shilled for the Ground Zero mosque (which over 80% of the families opposed). But if 911 family members opposed the mosque, they were racist-islamophobic-antimuslim-bigots.
(An inquiry from David W. Dunlap, a reporter for The New York Times)
Dear 9/11 Family Members:
Yesterday, near Herald Square, I spotted an illuminated, stark white billboard that showed nothing more than the silhouette of a man in a business suit at the very top of the billboard, falling from the sky.
At the bottom of the billboard, but difficult to see from the street, was the legend “March 25.”
I was startled at first, until I realized that this must be an ad for Mad Men’s new season. But I found the imagery particularly unsettling, since — in this context, with office buildings behind it — it evoked those indelible images from 9/11.
I wondered about the sensitivity and appropriateness of this campaign. Maybe everyone who sees it will understand that it’s only a reference to a popular TV show. I do not want to start a controversy where none exists. But I am wondering whether any members of this List-Serv have been struck by this campaign. If so, I would be interested in your comments — positive or negative.
