One of the occupational hazards of running an online news site (www.muniwireless.com) is that you get press releases that smell fishy. Some are outright lies and the others fudge the truth. I can’t figure out if the authors of these press releases are just poor writers or if they are trying to mislead their readers.
Here’s an excerpt from my blog post on Rose Cantine:
I have had it up to here with misleading press releases. I received a press release that read: â€œXYZ Wireless, one of the nationâ€™s largest wireless broadband operators, has just launched service inÂ . . . â€
What do you conclude when you read the line â€œone of the nationâ€™s largest wireless broadband operatorsâ€?
