The Janison Ad

One of my favorite reporters, Dan Janison, is featured in a new ad from Newsday, running throughout Cablevision.

The ad, I think, underscores the fact that even newspapers with a complete domination of a geographical region–Long Island in this case–need to advertise their products, and not just rely on old faithful readers picking up the deadwood on their way into work.

Missing in the ad, I think, is Janison’s deadly-accurate ability to immitate nearly any elected official to hold office since the 19th Century.
