Fake News Flap - VNRs and Covert Propaganda
You've heard of WMDs, but what about VNRs? What are VNRs and how is the government using them as weapons of mass deception? On this week's edition, we'll take a look at video news releases and the VNR industry. We'll see how California's governor is using them to promote the state's policies on workers. We¹ll also talk to a public relations expert who's been called a fake reporter for producing VNRs for the Bush administration.
