    According to AppleInsider, Apple paid Corey Greenberg, the tech guru on the US network NBC, to praise the iPod on the Today show.

    Reports say that Apple paid him $15,000 to plug the iPod. Greenberg did not inform viewers that he was being paid, and the spots were supposed to be independent reviews of the product.

    These questionable ethics of Apple follows reports that the Bush Administration paid journalists and pundits thousands of dollars to promote various Bush programs without informing viewers their paid relationship to the Administation.
