What's With Fox News and Charles Schwab?

Reported by Melanie - August 11, 2007 -

Fox News is airing a live, two-hour special this morning (August 11, 2007) about the mortgage crisis called, "Fact v. Fear." Thus far, two of its reporters -- Cheryl Casone and Rebecca Gomez -- have participated in the discussion while standing outside the Manhattan office of the investment firm, Charles Schwab. Over the past week or two, Casone has reported from the same spot several times, but not from the offices of other firms.

Is Charles Schwab paying Fox for this form of advertisement, or, shall we say, "product placement?" If so, Fox should say so. If not, hey Fox, what gives?
