Oregon’s Pamplin Media goes full fake news

This news report is 100% fake and was created by an advertiser. Pamplin Media does not disclose this is a paid product promotion – one that is also making false claims implying it is against the law to buy third party printer ink cartridges. This is pure propaganda intended to confuse customers into not even considering alternatives. The primary methods it uses are fear (fear of violating the law!), appeal to authority (Epson, industry, the legal system), assertion and straight out lying.

The news media has fallen off a cliff.
