Have you also asked “Media Watch” Erwin?
I think it is fair to discuss with an editor the newsworthiness of new technology when advertising a particular brand of that technology.
For example if a solar installation company was advertising with you and you wrote editorial around the benefits of installing solar, how much solar was installed, how much more could be accommodated or even quoting somebody who thought it was an error to install more solar.
That would not be endorsing the particular brand or installer.
