The New York Times advertises itself with stem cell research

I’ve just noticed a New York Times paid “stem cell research” Google Adwords ad in my gmail inbox besides the automated Rejuvenation Research Vol. 11, No. 1, Feb 2008 is now available online” mail. That said, The New York Times is ranking the “stem cell” buzzword high and fishes for layman readers interested in the whole regmed topic for its own stem cell site both in the search results and next to articles (in the content network – explains Anna, my online marketer wife, next to me). I wonder for how long they have been paying for these ads? Other mainstream journals have similar ads, like The Washington Post. C’mon folks, let’s spend a part of those ad dollars to real stem cell research too!!!
