Chrysler, GM Blow Half a Million on Thank-You Ads

Can SOMEONE Help These People With PR?

By Published on .

I've been out a week and just saw a link to this video in ye olde Twitter feed. Above a chyron reading "Ad Outrage," Fox Business News' Cody Willard points out that Chrysler and GM, the most recipients of "corporate welfare," have spent "at least half a million dollars" in USA Today and Wall Street Journal to thank the American public for the involuntary loan yanked out of its pockets. The ads ran last week -- wonder if any were placed in local Detroit papers. Chrysler and Cerberus come in for the bulk of the beat down. (Old-fashioned text story here)
