Is Tennis Magazine Telling Interns to Make Anonymous Blog Posts?

Tennis is apparently urging interns who work for the magazine to post to their message boards, without identifying themselves as employees. Apparently, one intern had second thoughts and asked the New York Times "Ethicist" column for advice.

That's messed up... it certainly isn't the most ethical thing to do. It's another example of a corporation trying to sell people an agenda instead of just putting a good product out there and letting us judge for ourselves. Seems rather slimy to me.

The message boards there have typically been anemic. I have seen on occasion posts that were cut and pasted from this forum appear on theirs.

I really appreciate TW hosting this forum. Just want to let them know. Thanks Guys!!!
