This month marks the one-year anniversary of the publication of ANA's "media transparency" recommendations, which followed a major investigation of media agency practices. Lest we forget how central media transparency is to ANA, Bob Liodice (President and CEO of ANA) and Doug Wood (outside legal counsel) published a MediaVillage article this week reminding us that "if the allegations against the [media] agencies are true, the behavior is reminiscent of past high-profile financial scandals." There you have it! Lehman Brothers, Tyco, Enron, Worldcom, step aside! Media agencies and their owners belong in the same lineup as Bernie Madoff, Dick Fuld, Dennis Kozlowski, Ken Lay, Jeffrey Skilling and Bernie Ebbers!
