You should be shocked by the recent public discussions concerning native advertising. This is nothing more than a form of corrupt advertising that poses as legitimate editorial product but is actually an advertisement bought and paid for by an advertiser. It takes the form of an article that goes on and on singing the praises of a product or company.
The latest operations that specialize in this form of advertisement are Buzzfeed and Vice. Because they are doing so well, CNN has decided to create a studio to develop native ads. Outlined here by the Native Advertising Institute it’s a platform/studio called Courageous. Fast Company has another article on how the company formed a specific fully funded LLC called GBS or Great Big Story to produce bogus videos for advertisers so CNN can compete with Vice.
Part of the campaign to be used by CNN for its native advertising business. The name of the operation avoids any CNN references and with the rocket ship is supposed to appeal to millennials. This group of young adults loves Vice Magazine and are seen as the biggest suckers for native ads. They are responsible for the trend along with the corrupted media.
Only your No Agenda Show has been suspicious of Vice since its morphing into a producer of questionable documentaries. These CNN initiatives just make things worse as CNN has decided to do the same thing.
As this is the easiest way to make money in corporate media and this is where everything is headed. EVERYTHING. If it was possible, all news reports would be advertising.

You can think of the newsmedia as you look at this picture sent in by one of the producers. This is a patch of catnip that has apparently been discovered by the neighborhood cats. Hilarious mammals.
Catnip = native advertising. The cats represent the news media.
