An April 22 NewsBusters post by Tom Blumer promotes a OneNewsNow article critical of what he called the "Formerly Mainstream Media" for not paying the desired amount of attention to the American Family Association-led boycott of Ford for alleged "corporate support of homosexual causes." But Blumer fails to note the self-serving aspects of all of this:
-- OneNewsNow is the "news" division of the very same American Family Association that is leading the boycott, making this, for all intents and purposes, a press release. OneNewsNow was called AgapePress until earlier this year, when its operations were merged with American Family Radio's news division.
-- The only person quoted in the article is Kristen Fyfe of the Culture and Media Institut -- which, like NewsBusters, is run by the Media Research Center.
Essentially, this is all circular cross-promotion, and Blumer gives little indication to his readers that it's not.
