little did he know

My name is Brad Shannon. This is my personal Tumblr. I post content I am curious about or find interesting or worth discussing. Also, cute animals and random funny or weird stuff. Generally not to be taken seriously.

I work for HuffPost Politics and HuffPost Live. In addition to producing live and edited video, I manage the DC bureau's technical, logistical, and informational needs.

Things I post or reblog do not necessarily reflect/espouse my personal beliefs, nor those of my employer.

Ever watch cable news? You’ve seen this guy. This redhead has been on all the major cable news networks and has filled up tons of ads with claims that his company will solve your tax problems. (It’s even in their logo!) Ironically, TaxMasters has had to file for bankruptcy protection as the result of a $200 million fraud settlement. The big three cable networks are on the hook for a loss, too — the company owes CNN $2.6 million, Fox News Channel over $938,000 and MSNBC nearly $260,000. What? You mean you can’t trust a guy with a beard?

    I’d say it’s less the beard and more the ginger. And I’m not just saying that cause I have a beard.

    This raises an interesting question. Do networks have any obligation to vet their advertisers? What sort of obligation?...
