Donald Trump is uber-dependent on the media. And vice versa. What does it mean for advertising?

Be sure to check out other major stories from the November 7th edition of the newsletter:
- Facebook's top-line growth is double that of any other company: third-quarter revenue soared 56% to $7 billion and its quarterly profit nearly tripled to $2.38 billion. But there's a downside: Facebook is running low on ad inventory and can't keep up the growth.
- Virtual assistants that can read social cues and nonverbal signals are less jarring—and surprisingly persuasive. That's right: chatbots with social skills will convince you to buy.
- With the rise of companies like Dollar Shave Club, Uber, Airbnb and more, the expanding role of the CMO involves combating disruption. Sounds like a job for Brain+Trust Partners.
