    Sound familiar?

    An interesting about the sad state of journalism in today's world.

    Funny thing is that most high end audio publications and web sites have taken the art of "sponsored content" to levels unseen in other types of publications.

    Thanks for the interesting article! I heard a similar story on CBC in an interview a few days ago... Certainly no surprise to many of us I think!

    If "sponsored content" means the reviewer gets to keep the equipment under review or purchase it at a deep discount, then the hi-end audio press are pioneers in this area.

    Now, now lest we want to upset the apple cart, the reviewer NEVER gets to keep the equipment, rather it's more like a loan that never gets paid back, that way there are no messy ethical issues Just ask any US politician.
