Why don't corporations use negative advertising?
Popular wisdom among American political advisers holds that negative advertising or “attack ads” are very effective. I’m talking about ads that say bad things about an opponent, as opposed to good things about oneself.
My question is, why do you think this type of advertising is relegated to politics? If it works so well, why don’t we see Coke slinging mud at Pepsi?
