And now a word from the experts …

While tabloid journalism seems to be the name of the game with Jayne O’Donnell and USA Today, there are actually bonafide experts on topics like multilevel marketing that also regularly publish articles. One example is Direct Selling News, a trade journal focused on the direct selling and network marketing industry. This month they have published an article that provides a nice, intelligent rejoinder to USA Today’s piece. I suggest you give it a read!
