I am grateful for one thing about the partnership between CBS News and ExxonMobil: That they give some visual signs of their relationship. I was reading last night when I saw the following at the top of an article at CBS News.
What does it mean for a news article to be presented to us by ExxonMobil, the big oil company? How would we react to any “news” presented to us by a marketing executive from ExxonMobil? I hope that, with this corporate partnership right there for us to see, that Americans will react to CBS News with the same appropriate amount of skepticism.
