Quote, unquote: Erasing the line we used to
draw around ads

As news brands continue to believe in their content imperative, they dilute their equity by using cheap-content tricks to build volume and by handing their brand value to advertisers to replace lost ad revenue. Marketers help publishers milk those brands. And the public? We’re smarter than they think we are. We’ll understand when news organizations become paid shills. We understand that marketers would still rather force-feed us their messages than simply serve us.
--Jeff Jarvis (Buzz Machine), writing on about falling into the trap of native advertising, erasing the distinction between ads and editorial.
