I work in an industry where bullshit news is released regularly, often disguised as opinion pieces or rumors... Issuing such a press release that gets picked up by major media outlets can often cause a reaction that could make someone a lot of money. I personally think this is bordering fraudulent, but again, if it is dressed up as an opinion or "hear say" it might be perfectly legal (just not ethical). Any thoughts? I am thinking of going down this road, but don't want to do anything illegal, nor do i want to do it and have it traced back to me (whether it is legal or not) I don't want to say which industry it is in at this stage.
