I confused this sentence "In response to a recent editorial slamming the agency's newest advertising campaign"
first, there is skip between 'slamming' and 'the agency's newest advertising campaign' in this case, which is "that is" because slamming is noun. but I'm not sure because I didn't know about skip things very well.
second, slamming is verb and "the agency's newest advertising campaign" is object. but if it's correct, there is It should be noun after "in response to"
so I can't catch this sentence's structure.
please give me which is correct or incorrect. and tell me I can skip 'that is' or not. ex. there is an apple (that is) new advertising from apple company.
and there is full passage
In response to a recent editorial slamming the agency's newest advertising campaign, the agency spokesman denounced the piece as stemming from adversarial motives, due to the editorialist's position on the board of the agency's primary competitor.
thank in advance
