The New York Times reports:

Tony Schwartz, a self-taught, sought-after and highly reclusive media consultant who helped create what is generally considered to be the most famous political ad to appear on television, died Saturday at his home in Manhattan. He was 84.

That would be LBJ’s Daisy ads.


I was about to say there was a certain level of irony his death occurring so deep into election time. Yet, since Bill Clinton, we’re ALWAYS in election mode… so, never mind.
