The biggest stories in advertising in 2012

Advertising Age wrote a great article  about the biggest trends and news stories of the year.

It covers almost everything, from JC Penney trying (and basically failing) to reinvent retail to Super PACs failing to “buy” the presidential election.

A lot has happened this year. Hurricane Sandy shut down businesses, particularly advertising and public relations, for days. Newsweek is joining the future and discontinuing printing a physical copy of their publication (in addition, The New York Times has cut back on how many days they publish).

It’s been a busy year.
