    Angry Major PR Spin
    So Shawn posts an article on his bloggy thing:

    "Media Breakaway and Florida Attorney General Working on Industry Best Practices" which leads to an article IndustryCompliance Program

    ************************

    Florida attorney general reaches $1M settlement with mobile content marketer

    "Continuing his chase of errant mobile firms, Florida’s attorney general has concluded a $1 million settlement with Media Breakaway LLC, a Colorado-based marketer of content for mobile phones."

    That is A LITTLE DIFFERENT, Shawn !!

    Yes, sure. After being the king of spam, he's the king of spin.

    Looks like a paid "press release". The same article without the spin is here and addresses the reasons they were fined $1,000,000.

    "In addition to working together, Media Breakaway is also contributing $1 million to the Florida Attorney General’s fund designed to promote more consumer-friendly online advertising."

    Wow, what a load of bullshit by Shawn. As if he doesn't know this is a penalty for deceptive marketing practices by Media Breakaway, LLC. Who actually contributes money to Attorney General's Fund anywhere?

    What's worse is people like him supposedly represent affiliate marketing. Which I don't blame him for trying but I am more disappointed with those who know better and still support him.
