We call this fake news or advertising, not any form of journalism. This so-called “entrepreneurial journalism” simply constitutes doing some write-up after which follows the name of the holy product towards the end of the exposition. This practice is bent on selling its form of reality to the public. Journalism? Not so. It is pure and simple advertising.

When this kind comes to news sites, you can be sure people not only gnash their teeth. They wonder where in the world people learn doing this thing. Where? In the profit world.
