Here is a recent AAFP newsletter. I have mentioned before that they are selling out with ads to look like stories. This week’s edition had no shame in starting right out with the American Heart Association. Bang. They come back later with this one:
Wow, the makers of Diflucan must love this. Or hate that they didn’t pay enough to be “highlighted”.
Why does the AAFP need to sell out like this? Where is all this money going?
I know that other blogs and newsletters will blend in ads and make them look like real stories. It’s shady. It’s gross. But in my opinion it is disgraceful for a medical newsletter from the AAFP to allow these advertisers to use THEIR studies as the ad.
Am I wrong here?Tweet
