Brazilian Blogger Bashing!
The respected Brazilian newspaper Estadao
decided to promote its new online presence by jokingly producing a series of ads
with obvious misfits and asking such questions as "Is this the guy giving you dating advice?" and a video
(youtube) comparing bloggers to monkeys. Bloggers are outraged
"Why would you read a newspaper that compares bloggers to monkeys?". In today's newspaper
, Estadao offers no apology but instead dryly recounts the facts. Meanwhile, the resulting controversy, with thousands of blogs weighing in, has driven a lot of traffic to their new site.
