Reliable media outlets don't allow advertisers or officials to control what news they print or give favored treatment to them, nor do they deny news coverage to those who don't advertise or pay. However, as the amount of news sources online and elsewhere grow, some may often have a hidden agenda. Advertorial copy in usually reputable sources can blur the lines even more. This book makes this sometimes-confusing topic accessible and understandable to young readers, showing them how to navigate the murky waters of news versus ads.
