Telcos Offering Free iPods If You Complain About Cable Companies
from the conflict-of-interest? dept
In the battle between telcos and cable companies, both sides like to look for “public opinion” that proves their point — but unfortunately there are way too many cases where that “public opinion” is bought and paid for by the companies it benefits. We’ve seen this with Astroturf campaigns funded by one side or the other, and now Broadband Reports points out that a front organization funded by Verizon is handing out free iPods to people who complain about their cable provider.
