This press release news article about ArtsGreensboro comes complete with info on how to support the group's fundraising campaign, but doesn't mention the N&R's pay-for-play deal with AG, as promised for bought stories.
So are we to assume that this particular gusher is just straight news?
It doesn't really matter, since you can't read it without wondering how the business relationship influences coverage, and concluding that there's really no difference at this point between one type of story and the other.
Will other non-profits get this kind of coverage when they launch campaigns?
FWIW, I couldn't be happier about all the good news reported in the piece.
I just wish I felt better about the publishing process.
