Since our founding, The Kelsey Group has been committed to delivering our unvarnished view of the dynamics of the ever changing and evolving local advertising market. We have been criticized by some in traditional media who suggested we have overstated the rise of the Internet. And we’ve taken shots from those pushing new media suggesting we are too sympathetic to traditional media. Being at the center of this rapidly changing interactive local media space is exhilarating and at times terrifying.
We remain committed to providing a forum through this blog for a spirited debate and exchange of ideas on local media. What we will not do, however, is offer a forum for personal attacks. Therefore, we made a decision this morning to remove our blog post from yesterday that pointed to a CNBC segment about the Yellow Pages. Please keep commenting on what you read here, and by all means be candid, contrary and controversial. If you wish to make a personal attack, however, find a different forum.
