Offensive & Politically Incorrect Advertising & Propaganda

Glaring racism, violence, murder, misogynism and a lot of smoke - In this post, we have a look at various forms of "politically incorrect" advertising and propaganda from the late 1800's up until the present. The material of our present days might not be as overt as it used to, but it's still about in droves, and sometimes with an even fouler smell to it.

Sorry dude, but my expirience and knowledge of marketing/advertising is that propaganda is NEVER POLITICALLY CORRECT so this is absurd to call it as you did. You may talk abot some passed times when that was usual and so on until someone made law about no smoke in advertising and so on...

I can't help but find the irony in this ...  Here Crestock shows offensive and degrading advertisements......and yet there is 'Judge Ross' on the side bar publically degrading their very own contributors photos in the 'worst image of the day' - which if it's your photo - you might just find offensive.

good point. i am not with Crestock, but maybe they should change the title to something less destructive
and more positive "win win" . like instead of a "this is crap", do something that offers help to a "bad stock photograph". this way , those whose images are rejected for the same reasons will learn what elements to avoid . this in turn would benefit the contributors , and Crestock, as the approval rate increases . win win situation. Take off Judge's wig , break his hammer, and get Ross to put on an ombudsman's overall.
wouldn't it be nicer and friendlier ? ;)

Lol!

Sorry for my not recognizing irony in your words dude... If that was quote from Crestock it doesn't surprise me at all...

They always tend to invent hot water as well as they try to do it with ice ;-)

Other words: They are judging by some 'super inteligent' kind of mind streams known only to them...

Let them sink as they are sinking...

And, of course abandon the ship!
