What do you think of Truth in Advertising?
If I answer that question cynically, I guess I just snarkily offer up the opinion that Truth in Advertising is an oxymoron. There is no Truth in Advertising.
But if I go too far the other way, the question of what Truth in Advertising is gets similar short shrift. Advertising becomes almost a matter of political correctness, with no real meaning attached. I encountered that at a Cheesecake Factory Restaurant a few months ago, where the laws in New York requiring that chains above a certain size post caloric counts for their food led to one pasta dish being rated at—I’m not kidding—550 to 2100 calories.
