Advertising Age Cites Schlussel on Wall Street Journal Re-Design

By Debbie Schlussel
I’m cited by Advertising Age columnist Jonah Bloom, who agrees with part of my take on the new Wall Street Journal design:

If I was going to nitpick, there are a couple of things that didn’t quite work on day one: . . . . “The Journal Exchange” — the home of its “Letters to the Editor” — perhaps deserves more prominent location than the back of the Marketplace section. Debbie Schlussel posits this one on her blog. In fact I’d like to see more reader comment throughout the pages.

Advertising Age is the bible of the ad industry. In this case, it’s good to be a “nitpicker.”

It is hardly “nitpicking”. One of the things I like so much about the WSJ (the best newspaper in the country IMHO) is the letters to the editor. Many of those submissions by readers provide additional insight into the articles and columns on the printed pages. The letters oft’times fill in the gaps given the space constraints inherent in every publication. Further, the WSJ letters to the editor offer some hope that there are still intelligent Americans who aren’t afraid to speak (write) their piece. Reading the the letters to the editor in The Macomb Daily would lead people to believe that the last intelligent person has departed and turned out the lights. THAT publication should publish its letters with the rest of the comics. (sigh)
