That's what is crazy about Reuters bend. They are a news service, not a paper, a website, or TV show. It would be like the API news service releasing a clearly biased story to hundreds of subscribing papers across the country, when the quality of the piece was fit for no more than an Opinion, or Editorial, section.I think someone should start their own, independent news agency... maybe call it Rueters? Then you'd be free to fling these stories around as much as you'd like. Either that, or see if The Onion would be interested in hiring some freelancers.
Thanks for the parody, Steverino. With any level of professional integrity, the $50,000, or $250,000 per unit claims must be seen as flat-out lies. They know better. Shame.
