State-of-the-Cuisinart Marketing: How To Blur The Line Between Advertising And Editorial Content

Once upon a time, there was a bright line between advertising and editorial content/entertainment.

As in, here’s where the news content stops and the advertising starts; or here’s where the entertainment programming stops and the advertising starts.

No more.

The Natives Are Restless: News Publishers Move Line Distinguishing Edit, Ad Content

If there is a red line delineating the church and state of journalism, some big news publishers have just crossed it — introducing a spate of new “native” advertising formats that blur the line between advertising and editorial content in new ways, including brand-produced videos served directly in the news organizations’ video news players.

    Contemporary storytelling

    Modern storytelling has a broad purview. In addition to its traditional forms (fairytales, folktales, mythology, legends, fables etc.), it has extended itself to representing history, personal narrative, political commentary, and evolving cultural norms. Contemporary storytelling is also widely used to address educational objectives.

    I am still not able to find a reliable and easy to use griddle, I read about Cuisinart 5 in 1 Griddler and many buyers rated it as five stars but also many buyers recently complained about it so I am really confused
