The media – a game changer, a metaphor, or nothing more than a business in a marketplace?

Joke Of The Day
 

An interdepartmental cricket match was held every year between the Marketing Department and Engineering Department of one company.

 

The day of the game, as hard as the marketers tried, the engineers whipped them thoroughly.

 

In their best tradition, the Marketing Department decided to find the best spin they could on the dismal result. Their notice on the bulletin board the next day read:

 

“The Marketing Department is pleased to announce that for the recently-completed cricket season, we came in 2nd place, having lost just one game all year. The Engineering Department, however, had a rather dismal season, as they won only one game all year.”

 

Tweet Of The Day

R Gowthaman,CEO for South and South East Asia, Mindshare @GowthamanR:
By far the worst government to run India. Absolutely living in the old world politics. Not that the opposition is any better. Sad for India.
