Questioning the media

Q. Do advertisers ever produce messages specifically designed to be offensive? Is it proper for the news media to give attention to those offensive ads? Why or why not? Or should the news media just ignore offensive ads to avoid giving them free publicity/

A. I do believe advertisers produce messages intended to be offensive because any publicity is good. Whether it is proper or not for the news media to give it attention is a personal question. What’s proper to you might not be to me. I think if media did not give these controversial messages attention people would complain that the news media wasn’t spotlighting these companies so the people could be aware.
