Is there hidden marketing in TV production?

By John.Carbines ·
I noticed that Fox News during Easter was including a couple of frames of website promos between news items. Is this a subtle marketing attempt at the viewers subconcious?
Surely it can't be accidental. I suspect that this may be illegal.
Has anyone else seen this?
I'm happy to post copies of the video clips I kept once I realised what was going on.

It's purely entertainment not news.

Fox News is an Oxymoron? I have to agree. It's very disjointed, maybe they think we are like that as well.
What I was concerned at was the sublimal marketing approach. I wonder if HP, QuiBids, TheXFactorUSA.com, Bayer (Durazone weed killer), etc, are paying for this sort of marketing.
