Bob Garfield reports that the "World Business Review" television program hosted by former Secretary of State Alexander Haig was not the business-news magazine it was posing as to colleges and universities in order to keep tapes of the programs on their library shelves. This was rather a weekly infomercial, charging "interviewees" for their appearance and collaborating with those paying clients in fashioning "interview" questions. Garfield also found that the show was using a slush fund, with a fictitious corporate title, to circumvent federal regulations about paying time and advertising on public TV.
