Question by Alex Rogers: What are some good examples of the blurring line between journalism and advertising?
An example would be a news show producing a paid advertisement that looks and feels like an editorial.

Another would be advertisements in paper magazines that are written to look like articles. These often appear in computer magazines (PC Mag, PC Gamer, etc) and have the word ‘advertisement’ in tiny print.
