Conflict of Interest? Advertisement for Toshiba PDR-3300 beside our HWC review same
I understand balancing financial viability with ethics. However, I believe having the Banner advertising the Toshiba PDR-3300 camera literally inches from a HWC review of the item to be a bit..."in your face" conflict of interest.
It does not take a rocket scientist to discern that if we are taking money for a add....our review of the product can not be totally objective.
This may very well be suicide for the site. Once consumers learn that the content can not be trusted, they will go elsewhere. Once they go elsewhere, so do our $ from banner adds.
If the site wishes to be successful then HWC should be doing it cleaner, better, and with absolute professional and unbiased reviews. That is what attracts readers....and that is what attracts banner $.
At least have the courtesy to move the banner over to the left so that its more .5 inches from the headline. For a second I thought the banner and the headline were all the same thing (for crying out loud).
