Top stories in the latest issue:

W1A REVISITED
The BBC inept response to Newsnight’s report on how YouTube places ads for public bodies, including the Beeb, before extremist jihadi videos, makes Aunty look even more bungling than usual.

RADIO ALARM
The call for commercial radio stations to join a project to promote UN goals to end extreme poverty may not go down too well with big station owner Global Radio given its penchant for corporate tax dodging.

AFTER SACHSGATE
Despite an apparently strict ruling after Sachsgate about agents not acting as executive producers on their clients’ programmes, ‘exceptional circumstances’ make it business as usual in BBC comedy.

AD NAUSEAM
Scottish and Southern Energy’s mystifying ad about an orang-utan, a species suffering thanks to climate change… and M&S’s Christmas Partywear pitch which is horribly familiar to anyone in the fashion business.

PLUS: Dumb Britain, Desperate Business, Desperate Marketing, Hipsters, I-Spy & more.
