    Default Dressage Daily and Cesar Parra

    Can someone explain to me why Dressage Daily has nothing about the criminal charges pending against Cesar Parra by The State of New Jersey. I just reviewed the site and saw that there
    have been over 25 pages of links to articles relating to him. In
    comparison Stephen Peters has 3.

    I think that a person can pay DD and others to print articles about them. It's CP's PR machine at work.

    I stand corrected, Steffen Peters does have more articles than Parra but still nothing on the criminal charges.

    If you really wanted an answer, the place to ask would be DD, wouldn't it?

    Yes, to be on Dressage Daily you pay. It's like an infomercial.
    Read it there, and check the facts elsewhere.

    The Parra story has been reported on the "Dressage News From Around the Globe" site.

    Don't you love that he claims this is the owners way of "distracting" him from his work of riding in the olympics. Therefore, he is suing them!

    Classy! (sarcasm)

    I dont know if he did anything wrong with the young stallion or not, but I have no respect for him suing right back under such a silly "excuse". Does he even have a shot at London?? (genuine question; I've not kept up).

    The letter you are quoting from was from his attorney, not from CP.

    Not sure how others feel about it but I feel any articles that are paid to be published on the Internet or in print should indicate they are paid advertisements or editorials.

    FWIW, Ilona, I agree. they should make a notation when they're being paid (lots of $$) to do "articles" on professionals.

    Thanks, Velvet. I was referring to ISE's comment regarding DD making it clear which of their articles are their own and which are paid promotional pieces. From a purely practical stay-out-of-the-fray standpoint, they might want to seriously consider noting which pieces are paid. Especially with this brouhaha surrounding a particular trainer. I know, I know--innocent until proven guilty, but I would not want my name or website associated with someone who is being investigated on animal abuse charges. Um, so I guess I'm not on the fence after all.

    ANYHOO, it's called an advertorial, and they're very common. Typically there's a notation somewhere that says that it's paid. I don't know if that's the case, but if it is, do we really care that much?

    Actually, I do care. It's akin to reading a product review done by an impartial customer as opposed to a review written by someone who received something in exchange for the review. The latter just doesn't have the same credibility as the former.

    "If it IS" noted somewhere that it is a paid article, then do we care?
    I don't. I don't read them. Just like the pages of a magazine that sort of blend in with the copy that have "advertizement" in small print at the top.

    I care. An infommercial is hardly objective.

    The OP of the thread has no IP overlap between other posters, so there's no evidence that she/he is an alter for anyone. While the general topic is a controversial one, please don't whip out the "troll" branding iron just because she brought it up.

    We've removed a bunch of posts related to the above issues; please avoid going down that path again.

    Thanks,
