Ethical dilemma?

Ethical dilemma? Aaron Brown and others get paid to appear as “authority figures” in what amounts to be video press releases. (Or, if I were describing it, custom video news segements.) What is the ethical implications of this? As surprising as it may be to some, I find it to be on the darker side of gray.

    I’d peg it at charcoal. Bu then, shading truth and reality are apparently nothing new for the news-biz bigs, if you buy this:

    Beware of treading in so easily into Central American politics….everything there is gray, I am certain. [Heh.] It is entirely accurate to say, for instance, that Castro was successful in nearly wiping out illiteracy in Cuba. The Sandinistas may have been similarly successful — or have had similar aims — in Nicaragua. The American press is notorious — as is our government — at demonizing anyone who is our “enemy.” If we’re against them, they must be all bad, and they must have started out to be evil to everyone in their path. Now, evildoers like Saddam Hussein aside, few others can be painted with so broad a brush.
