Its the Media We Should Be Pissed At

Again a few negative tweets are used to make a story.  This time Starbucks cups get a whipping.  At what point does the media feel compelled to use data to support an assertion that a brand is facing a problem?

Really, it’s a clever little marketing ploy that’s worked – we are talking about coffee cups.  

The coffee isn’t worth talking about that’s for sure.
