In developing an opinion about earned media, I looked up and realized that the most famous piece of earned media was sitting infront of me on my wall. 

Campbell-soup-painting

This is the letter the Campbell Soup Company sent Andy Warhol concerning his famous paintings of their soup cans in 1964. 

Letter
