A nice article from the Center for Media in Democracy that shows another side of the fake news issue.
I want to admit something here: When it comes to broadcast news, I thought I knew more than I did. I think I was more likely to view the VNR subject as I did the standard print (or electronic) press release, press kit, whatever.
I try hard not to be cynical, but sometimes it seems like the only times I'm right is when I believe the worst... which, come to think about it, seldom pans out either. Maybe I'm just wrong on a regular basis and I'm only beginning to see it.
Hell, my fantasy football team was a train wreck this year.
