How About Pay-NOT-To-Play?

This doesn't really shock me as much as it might.

Spitzer said Sony BMG executives offered ``outright bribes'' to radio programmers to make sure the company's artists got heard. Among the goodies Sony BMG gave employees of stations owned by Infinity Broadcasting, Clear Channel Communications and others: airline tickets, cash, vacation packages, PlayStation video game systems, DVD players and laptop computers.

In one e-mail that Spitzer released, a station manager who allegedly accepted gifts joked to Sony BMG executives: ``I'm a whore this week. What can I say?''

What... you didn't think people were actually requesting Jennifer Lopez and that Celine Dion Chrysler commercial song, did you?
