The Wall Street Journal ran an article named Once-Wary Industry Giants Embrace Internet Advertising yesterday. It discusses the recent shift in large retailer ad budgets towards online ads. For example, Pepsi-Cola is expecting its online spend to increase to between "5% and 10% of the overall ad budget in 2006, from 1% five years ago."

Business Week is running an article calling out the same theme, "Rise Of The Lowly Search Ad."
