Do you really want honesty in advertising?

Olympus "This new cosmetically updated version of the lens was created and assembly moved to China to make it somewhat cheaper and to compete more with the Panasonic 100-300".

Or Coca Cola "This gut rotting sugar drink tastes nice and costs bugger all to make, so buy it".

Or McDonalds "This food causes obesity but is sugared and fatted sufficiently to taste nice and it makes us very rich, so buy it".

Or Apple "We have cheap labour making these toys and we have so much money we don't know what to do with it, but keep buying our stuff as we want to soak up all the world's currency"

Insert your own truthful advertising here.....

The advertising world would be a much better place with you in charge. Maybe I'll start a campaign for completely honest adverts

You obviously don't know how business works. Marketing is basically bending the truth.
