A media and advertising CEO explains how his world shapes ours
The TV program coming into our living rooms isn′t free. It′s a simple Faustian bargain consumers have made but one with enormous implications. It means that David Verklin, CEO of one of the world′s largest ad–buying companies, and his clients–the world′s largest advertisers–control what TV programs get aired, what magazines get published, and how Google and Yahoo stay in (very healthy) business. In Watch This, Listen Up, Click Here, Verklin and Kanner expose the inner workings of the media, marketing, and advertising industries.
