BLOGS OF DEATH
POSTS CITED IN CREATIVE CHIEF'S SUICIDE
February 26, 2008 -- No one seems to know why Paul Tilley, the 40-year-old creative chief of ad agency DDB Chicago, jumped to his death from the window of the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago on Friday.
Most of the anger appears to be directed at two sites - Agency Spy and Adscam - that subjected Tilley to scrutiny leading up to his death. Both bloggers defended their coverage yesterday.
"I see in the comments of this post that many will point fingers at this blog for Mr. Tilley's death. That is unacceptable," Agency Spy wrote in a posting.
"These hateful advertising blogs seem to be written by people who are bitter about the business," DiSesa wrote on AgenCySpy.
