richardselby says: don't you think there's gonna be a great deal of contention between companies with er... unscrupulous labor practices using Tumblr as an ad platform and the large and vocal social justice community on the site?
» SFB says: Newspapers cover the social justice community too, and sometimes they run ads from companies whose interests don’t match their own. That doesn’t mean it affects the content being created. It’s what folks in the newspaper business call a “church and state” thing. I’d recommend everyone take a wait-and-see approach. If it turns out we get an ad like this Atlantic ad, then we should probably complain. — Ernie @ SFB
