Crass is about the only word I can think of to describe the latest bayantel ad, capitalizing on Rupert Ambil’s use of their wireless ‘landline’ during, and in the aftermath of the Penn take-over.

I don’t suppose everyone will agree, but it just seemed to further blur the already vanishing line between journalism and crass commercialism; bad enough we can barely distinguish between news and entertainment, we might now be entering the age of reporters preening as image models.
