Advertising Age magazine has completed a study of how much Black-owned media the big brands are buying. Of course, they cover McDonald's. There's nothing new in the reporting, but a passage mentioning Tariq Hassan gave me a chuckle.
"One of the McDonald's challenges, similar to General Motors, is the divide between the national budget (controlled by Hassan) and the local budget driven by the franchisees."
"Controlled by Hassan"? I'm sure Tariq thinks so.
Reporters can only put down what the corporate pukes tell them, even when a corporate guy gives himself a promotion.
