“[T]he Dove episode stands out not only for its overt censorship, but also for how the increasingly cozy relationship between advertisers and news organizations can encourage less obvious forms of self-censorship, and for how editorial decisions can distort public discourse. As the distinctions between advertising and news operations continue to blur, we can expect more of these controversies in the future.”

No parallels to be drawn to Buyer’s (”Buyers’”?) Guides. Or cycling at all even.

Garmin VIRB XE: Tell A Better Story
ami jó volt GoPronak, az jó a Garminnak is :)
I’m not saying data can’t help you tell a better story, I’m just saying it’s nowhere near as good as actually getting better at story telling.
The data overlays are well applied here, but video would have been awesome even without them. The 20mph, I-hopped-a-log daredevilry of most Sunday doofers probably isn’t gonna get much better with temperature and percent-grade.
Get away before the Cipressa – Gianni Bugno 1990
Strange things were beginning to happen in cycling by 1990…
Crosswinds along the Riviera had broken up the peloton earlier than normal, scattering it into three large echelons, and when Angelo Canzonieri took a flyer off the front after passing Imperia, Bugno—for once—didn’t think twice about tracking the move. Once on the Cipressa, Bugno pulled clear alone and had 15 seconds in hand on the chasers over the Poggio.
“Is the world changing, or at least Italy?” Gian Paolo Ormezzano wrote in La Stampa the following day, with perhaps inadvertent foresight.
Overlooking the nicely-delivered story on the arrival of EPO, can we talk about Bugno’s hard-shell helmet? You can’t tell me that isn’t a prehistoric relative of today’s top-shelf offerings from Giro.
All of the looks back.
“But while they knew we were worth at least ten times more than their initial offer, they had still low-balled us in the hopes that they could get us for much less than we were worth. They were trying to fatten their profit margin, counting on us being inexperienced in traditional media because weren’t being represented by a Hollywood agent. Why on Earth would I work with people like that?”
