Judith T. Phair
In a letter to the editor of the New York Times, Phair defended the use of video news releases. The PRSA code, Phair wrote, requires producers to clearly identify "to TV stations the source of the video, for whom it was produced and avoiding the narrator's use of the word 'reporting.'"  In Phair's view the news stations carry "the responsibility to provide full disclosure to their viewers."
