Gene Randall 'Reporting,' Inc. (CJR Article)


Corporations have been doing this forever. They send out press releases that are nothing more than advertising dressed up as a news story. Only the most gullible or lazy editor would run one as news.


In point of fact, the piece is more than a mere study in shabby ethics. It's an act of wire fraud, one count for each broadcast, one count for each YouTube download/playing.


Randall can claim he was forced to take the gig because of the hardships he’s facing in the job market, but the fact that he uses the word “reporting”, when he’s clearly not reporting, is deliberately deceitful. Chevron is simply trying to manipulate viewers by packaging its message as objective news.
