You and I have both seen it. Especially in politics and entertainment. It's quite common for products and services to be presented in such a way as to appear as "News". And sure, why not? After all, using the newsworthy nature of anything is the basis of good marketing. Everybody wants to know interesting things that they can share with their friends and families and coworkers too. But is there a cost to this practice? What happens when people become so accustomed to news that isn't really news that they stop paying attention to the news that is? It's a fair question and one that bears asking.
