Description: On September 27, 2005, KABC-7 in Los Angeles aired a two-minute news segment on a blood test that can help diagnose allergies in children. What the station didn't tell its viewers was that the entire story was built from a video news release (VNR) funded by Quest Diagnostics. KABC-7 failed to disclose the corporate source behind their "report. The station took a two-minute commercial for a medical test, dressed it up, and passed it off on their unsuspecting viewers as news.
