Ready for you when you wake up, your newspaper of the future will be facsimile-printed through the night-in tabloid size, on a continuous roll.  You will bring yourself up-to-the-minute on the highlights of the news…by seeing what is happening on the television screen of the same machine.  Fantastic?  It’s already planned for post-war home use!

Newsweek November 6, 1944

Not sure how this is a whiskey ad?

DEVELOPING: “Karp just announced that the Featured spot on the Tumblr dashboard is going up for sale to advertisers.”

Looks like ads are finally coming to Tumblr in at least one form. [h/t @rossneumann]

So what about all the people who don’t use the Tumblr dash but instead visit Tumblr sites? Will they see ads? 

No! At least, not from Tumblr—any Tumblr blog is free to put whatever advertising they want on their own space.

For as long as I’ve been in politics, 14 years, journalists call me and ask if this is the most negative election ad atmosphere I’ve ever seen. And every year I say, ‘Don’t be ridiculous.’ But this year it’s true.
That’s Kenneth Goldstein, president of Kantar Media CMAG, which tracks content and targeting of political advertising, commenting on this year’s GOP primaries. As John Avlon notes, “A staggering 92 percent of the political ads run in Florida over the last week of the campaign have been negative." (For the record, Romney is outspending Gingrich 5 to 1.)
