The last item in the Media Diary in today’s Observer reads (sorry, I can find the link):
The Daily Express inteviewed Chelsea’s Sean Wright-Phillips last week, and included a blatant plug for the Nintendo games console he promotes in the story. Has the line between editorial and advertising now become so blurred it’s barely visible?
For the answer turn to page 20 of the Observer’s Business and Media section. Half a page of answer at that, headed “Dubai has the whole world in its sands” followed by a standfirst saying “Celebrities and the super-rich are snapping up new country-themed islands.” There is even a blob par at the end with the sales phone number.
