Does a product being featured on the news really mean anything?

Question by Brandon P: Does a product being featured on the news really mean anything?
I’ve seen lots of stuff advertised as being on CNN or Fox, do they check out the product? Does being featured really mean anything about the quality?

I wish I knew which item that was featured you are referring to. Maybe if you asked about that particular product, you could get replies from people who have already had experience with it.
