Conflicts of interest in the ethnic media


For some odd reason, I woke up early this weekend and ended up watching this show called AVS: Asian Variety Show. It has been around for years but I have never bothered to read it. There was a segment on this singer called Adnan Sami, which was preceded and followed by long ads for his upcoming show in New York. Makes me wonder if there is any oversight of these ethnic media shows. To me this sounds like a complete conflict of interest. It is nothing but a commercial for the show and that’s what it should be treated like. Do the networks who lease time to these shows know about this? I am frankly disgusted by this attitude!
