Against the Grain

By Jim Wittebols

Buffalo, NY – We've all heard about how some news organizations pay their interview guests. But now comes word that some guests are being asked to pay to get interviewed.

Commentator Jim Wittebols says it's all part of a troubling trend in which money influences what we see, read and hear.

Commentator Jim Wittebols is a professor of communications studies at Niagara University. His commentary, "Against the Grain," is a monthly feature of WBFO News.
