The next group that truly deserves to be lined up against a wall and shot are these advertisers. No, you do not get to cloud editorial pages with your products. We have enough problems with editorial independence without someone else adding their shit to the mix. (I don't mean that rhetorically--this would be equivalent to an ad exec squatting over a running press and pinching a loaf into it.)
And you can add Major League Baseball if they ever cave. I really loathe the European soccer (and hockey, and American auto racing, for that matter) uniforms, whose sponsor names and logos dwarf the names of the teams. There is more than enough room on the stadium structures plus all the technological tricks for television. You don't need the players as fucking billboards.
