McMahon Enters Sweepstakes
When Ed McMahon passed away, one question came up over and over again: how will Publishers Clearing House notify their winners now? The answer is easy: they'll notify their winners the same way they always have They were a New Jersey-based competitor of Publishers Clearing House, and they had a similar business model. Both companies were direct marketers who sold magazine subscriptions and other products. Both companies used large sweepstakes, with prizes worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, to promote themselves. And both ran afoul of the law for deceptive sweepstakes practices that caused people to think they had already won a prize, or that they needed to make a purchase to win.
When those of a certain age think of the Publishers Clearing House, they tend to remember TV ads featuring Ed McMahon knocking on a door while holding a big check. He was a spokesman for American Family Publishers. McMahon never left the studio to ambush families, and he never held a giant check. Similarly, Publishers Clearing House never hired a celebrity to serve as a spokesperson, and it was the Prize Patrol, not McMahon, that showed up on doorsteps with a giant check. So what happened that makes everyone remember these ads incorrectly?
I'm amazed this is happening. Is this a test for the "Powers that Be", they grabbed something as trivial as this to "test" their ability to alter history? This way when they need to change something significant they will already have the experience to succeed? This is really scary Check out Tiananmen Square, they are now saying "tank man" was never ran down by the Chinese tanks during the protest. I'm at a loss for words.
Ed McMahon has been firmly associated with Publishers Clearing House. You might be surprised to find out what his actual relationship with PCH was!.

American Family Publishers was an American company that sold magazine subscriptions. It is best known for running sweepstakes in which a large amount of money was offered as the grand prize in a range of several hundred thousand to one or more million dollars. The winner was chosen at random, by a professional auditing company, from among all who responded to the sweepstakes, regardless of whether a magazine subscription was purchased. Originally based in Newark , New Jersey, then Jersey City , New Jersey, the company's tactics attracted controversy, since the mailings that accompanied the sweepstakes promotions, which invariably included a form via which the recipient could purchase magazine subscriptions, frequently included language that seemed to indicate that the recipient had already won a prize, or was a finalist who had improved chances of winning a prize, when this was not the case. In a related phenomenon connected to the company's promotion tactics, news stories reported cases of elderly Americans travelling to Florida the company, at least for some time, routed their mail through St. Most of AFP's entry envelopes had windows on the back revealing an OCR code to identify the customer and sweepstakes, as well as any magazine subscription stamps on the entry form.
