Cablevision Head Pulls Even More Advertising from The Village Voice

A little over a month ago, Cablevision subsidiary Independent Film Center pulled its $400/week print ad from the Voice in reaction to a blog post that included a dick joke about Cablevision CEO James Dolan. "That same post has now resulted in all Madison Square Garden Entertainment advertising being pulled from the Village Voice," Foster Kamer reports. "Furthermore, LiveNation -- one of America's biggest concert promoters -- has now pulled all of its advertising from the The Village Voice at the behest of James Dolan, whose MSG Entertainment employs the services of Live Nation/Ticketmaster in their ticketing and promotions operations. In toto, a mediocre dick joke about a media acquisition has now cost this company upwards of $1M in yearly advertising revenue."
