Whose fault is the fakery?

Whose fault is the fakery?

: Jay Rosen praises the Boston University journalism faculty for condeming the use of “fake reporters” in video news releases.

Joe Territo says the fault here isn’t in the White House but in the newsrooms that run them.

: More fakery: I got email headlined “Innovative Companies Interview Request on Forbes Radio Channel.” Well, shucks, we’re flattered.

But reading down to the seventh paragraph, I find the reason this smelled fishy: They want to charge $5 grand for the privilege of being “interviewed.”

: UPDATE: Jay educates Joe.
