Another Minor Scandal with a VNR

The SF Chronicle reports on Governor Schwarzenegger’s intervention on behalf of business interests to ‘craft “emergency” regulations that would fulfill their agenda: end obligatory meal breaks and place new limits on employers’ liability for violating the law in the past.’ Part of the effort involved the production of a VNR. The story continues “Union groups have sued the administration, claiming that the “video news release” was essentially an infomercial for the administration that violated a state law against government propaganda.”
