When I answered the phone it was a woman from the Department of Justice. Sure! I thought this was a prank call. But then she went on to explain that the reason for the call was to set up a conference call with their lawyers to discuss the upcoming Tribune and Sinclair Broadcasting merger and the impact on my retail client in the Greensboro-High Point-Winston Salem market. How interesting! In my 35+ years of media buying handling some larger, Fortune 500 accounts, I've never been asked by the government about my opinion. . . .nor do I know anyone else in the industry that has. What did they want to know?
