Agency Exec Fired After Recommending That Casino Run Only "Native Content"
Hartford, CT — In what only can be described as a massive misunderstanding, GluDotMedia AMD Travis Pickham was thrown out of a client meeting and subsequently fired from the Foxwoods Casino and Resort account after proposing a Q3 media plan that only featured ‘native ads’. “The brief requested ’native placements’! I thought it was a weird request but how am I supposed to know that actually meant stuff like listicles and in-stream media? I can’t keep up with all this marketing jargon!” said Pickham. Sources say that the meeting got off to a rocky start when Pickham appeared in a traditional head-dress and referred to himself as “Chief Falling Rates”.
Foxwoods PR director Catherine Hillis strongly rebutted Pickham’s version of the events stating that it is never appropriate to present to any client wearing insulting clothing and added that Pickham’s smoking of a peace pipe in a conference room violated a number of city ordinances
Fox News Allegedly Behind The Disappearance of MH370
New York — Allegations are swirling around Fox News after news broke on Wednesday that the network may be behind the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. The flight manifest now shows that a number of passengers have employment history with the conservative news station. “They stole the plane! It’s parked in a LaGuardia hangar. They’re so desperate for ratings right now that they’ve resorted to creating and perpetuating their own news stories!” says former Fox News executive producer Liam Stanley, “Rupert [Murdoch] has nothing to lose at this point, he just spends his time watching movies like ‘Wag the Dog’ and ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ so you knew this was coming.”
"Obviously this story is totally false. Fox News merely reports on stories in a "fair and balanced" manner. Our condolences go out to the families and those left with questions on the disappearance of the plane," said Winston Turnbull IV, a spokesman for the cable news station. "But we do want to appreciate the fact that this long-running story has kept us on top of the coveted 18-34 demographic, upping ratings and having a positive effect on our ad pricing. We are really crushing it right now!"
CNN, MNBC and other cable news stations had no comment but a number of news vans were spotted heading towards LaGuardia Airport in Queens to likely investigate these claims.
