Do gun magazines ignore company performance in general or failures in the guns they review? Let's put it this way.
Company X has a poor history of quality control and honoring warranties.
Company X spends thousands of dollars every month advertising in Great Gunzine.
I am a writer for Great Gunzine.
I write a review of Company X's new Model 9999, saying that the Model 9999 is a sorry POS and complete junk, and that Company X won't honor their warranty. My article is not published, the story is turned over to Joe Toady who will praise the Model 9999, and I will find myself on the unemployment line.
