BOOKS PLUGGED SHAMELESSLY
Hold onto your hats folks, PP boy Scott Bridges has the dirt on new blog The Punch: it's a commercial site. Even worse, The Punch's mission statement is less than transparent:
No mention there of shameless plugs for new books by their authors, complete with Buy Now! links at the end.Funny, no mention in the Pure Poison mission statement of the Crikey subscription plug and multiple ads cluttering up every page.
If anything, Bridges envies The Punch's authors, who stand to make some real money. Maybe Bridges should write a book and plug it on Pure Poison; surely he's an authority on something people want to know more about.
