Controversy over our upcoming Branded Content panel has blown up on Twitter – and it’s not even Wednesday night yet. Our world class panelists from CJR, Contently, the FT, Mashable, and CUNY will thrash out the issues, from what readers really think to getting a job in “native advertising” – or not. Come add your views to the debate.
