So my wife and I are watching American Idol and a commercial is shown for a Kaplan University. The odd thing is some of the commercial is shot on the campus of University of Southern California (USC)

Stock footage!

I was leafing through a local magazine the other day and I noticed there were two ads for two different local (competing) pizzerias on facing pages. Both of the ads included a photo of a large spread of pizza, wings, salads, pastas, etc; but the funny part is that both ads used the same photo.

Kaplan education is owned by the Washington Post. Its nearly the only thing in their portfolio that is making money, the newspaper sure is not making money.

Its unclear if a online university degree is worth more than the electrons that were destroyed earning it.
 
Did Steve tell you that? Fuh - Steve. Just look at this tiny ad:
