Re: Organic Food.. not as safe?

Technically you are correct, however they could have bought ad time on the network and fluff disguised as a news piece is created.

Seen this many times

Sales and editorial are two separate lines with different executives. The two do not cross.

That might be in community TV, not in commercial TV, I've spent enough time in it to know exactly how the system works.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

That's right. Happened enough times in the states. but guess he knows all.

Also happened to Myth Busters and their RFID show 3-4 years ago that never aired. Discovery backed down and cancelled the airing of that show because the advertisers got all fired up about it

Money and advertisers pull the strings.

Quite a few examples of this that occurred.

And given that there is something called journalist ethics, the suggestion that there is a crossover (Sun Media excepted) is exaggerated.

The US isn't Canada.

You have quoted one example from the US. How about a proved Canadian example?

These "journalistic" idiots were too stupid to PhotoShop their pictures correctly. That report borderlines on outright lying and propaganda.

I don't believe any media outlets unless their claims can be substantiated by reliable sources. It's usually pretty hard to do given the amount of plagiarism and lazy reporting going on these days.

Whoever was involved editing then posting those pictures should be fired on the spot IMO.

Warez_Zealot, you lived in Japan if I remember right. You should be used to the rabid China propaganda and photo manipulation that regularly got blasted from the mainland. The several times I was there I was surprised, more so at the number of people that fell for it the first few times in Japan. Those were stock taken right from the Chinese press.

Oh they'll most likely be fired. Considering it came from a government sponsored daily press though? You can already guess who's going to come knocking though.
