Stuart Elliot, advertising columnist for the New York Times, did his occasional 20 questions
about advertising, marketing and media. This time he tries to skewer one of our clients and I'm
not sure what he's driving at. Here's the paragraph:
"How many grammarians wrote to the Newspaper
Association of America to complain that recent ad
about a campaign 'to promote literacy' also invites
readers to visit the association 'at their Web site'?"
What does he not like about "at their Web site"? I have ideas but I want other opinions.
The orginal line in the ad actually reads "Visit us at our web site http://www.naa.org" if that
makes any difference to you.
