Such a Lonely Word....

What do you do when you have a President who is scared of press conferences and reporters? Apparently, you hire actors, stage some fake press events, and release the video as if it is real.
TV news reports in America that showed President George Bush getting a standing ovation from potential voters have been exposed as fake, it has emerged.

The US government admitted it paid actors to pose as journalists in video news releases sent to TV stations intending to convey support for new laws about health benefits.
The doublespeak term for this type of fakery, apparently, is "Video News Release".
