Bingo. Magazines rely on advertising, if you give a bad review to a product, the manufacturer will pull their advertising. Pretty simple. Some manufacturers are tolerant of SOME criticism, some are absolutely zero-tolerance. Depends.
Before somebody chimes in about a certain pulp paper magazine that claims to be totally fair and honest...PLEASE. It ain't so.
As far as getting reveiws off of a website, well...take THAT with a grain of salt, too. Sometimes you will get someone amaturish and they will do a poor job of reviewing something. And THEY(you guys know which site I am talking about) are EXACTLY the same as any magazine with their relationship to sponsors. THIS site is pretty good about letting reviewers say their piece.
Just take all sources, from glossy mags, to website, to the old crows who sit on the fence at your club, with a big grain of salt, and make up your own mind.
