I'm Officially Concerned About The Media


This was up for at least half the day yesterday. It is the web equivalent of "Above The Fold".  There is a "latest news" graphic at the top. Underneath it are five links which are basically links to ads on the Star-Telegram site.  And then a graphic/link of  More Latest News.  But this is at the top of a news site web page. (I understand the standard newspaper has a real estate section with standard real estate "stories" that are paid ads. That's been going on for forty years). 

But this is the home page of the Star-Telegram. 

The only other story in view is about Blue Bell which seems to get lots of mentions by all the news organizations. But who could pay for that type of glowing media coverage?
