:agree: We've had a parade of Sentinel/OBJ reporters (at least one of whom is at least capable in other areas) who think their job is to regurgitate press releases, then show up and collect free stuff from the companies they cover. Not just Disney anymore. I expect that from bloggers, but a real shame coming from alleged "journalists." One of the main signs Orlando is the last "company town" in the U.S.
Forced dichotomy it may be, having attended opening day of Volcano Bay yesterday, no doubt Disney did this the right way with their CM/AP/blogger previews. Allowed plenty of people on social media to see this land in its best possible light.
And mind you, Disney made a LOT of people angry by not letting them in for previews but they knew they couldn't have a good show with what was working.
