In addition, the social media copy used to direct readers to our website was worded in a way that seemed promotional to many of our followers. This post was not meant to be an endorsement of the company in any way. It was meant as a profile of what seemed to be an interesting business -- similar to other profiles KUNR has aired as part of its collaboration with the Northern Nevada Business View. KUNR will be working in the coming days on a follow-up piece.
