That’s the problem here. You’re seeing things in a very ‘this or that’ way. This can be both what I said and what you said. I just disagree with making it out to be something sinister and moneygrabby every dang time there’s a company giveaway.
Radio stations do this. Schools do this. Companies do this. Charities do this. It’s one of the most common media/consumer contact opportunities in the PR business and it’s ok.
I think it’s annoying to remind people about this like they can’t figure it out for themselves. It’s a bit patronizing.
