When Newsletters Contradict Themselves

This is my first post in quite some time. I've been super busy with grad school stuff, and will be until next week.

Putting aside the question of why I'm reading investment articles in what little spare time I have, I couldn't resist writing this up:

In an article on Motley Fool, David Gardner, one of the founders of the sites writes, "My intent here is not to suggest you buy Google today or hop aboard the Activision train or go load up on (God forbid) Time Warner" (my italics for emphasis).

At the bottom, where the usual disclosure stuff is, it says that Time Warner is a Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation.

So, here's the Motley Fool co-founder telling you not to buy Time Warner while the disclosure statement says that Motley Fool recommends you to buy Time Warner. What's up with that?
