The Air Force Uber Alles.


Earlier this week I wrote about the Air Force advertising on Forbes and other business magazines and I speculated that they were advertising in those locations in order to help their military-contractor partners boost their already war-inflated stock prices. Last night Adweek and Adage reported that GSDM's Idea City has held onto the Air Force's advertising account, valued at around $370 million over the next nine to 10 years. That's a lot of money we could be building schools or providing health care with .

Why isn't there a taxpayer outrage about this? And why doesn't this make headlines- it is certainly newsworthy.

There is no outrage because people are fed news that is not news. Heath Ledger's death. Paris Hilton's latest car crash. A basketball game. We have been taught not to think, so we have stopped.
