Like many stations, Tegna-owned WUSA Washington airs regular features in its newscasts about medical and health topics. And when it does, WUSA tends to turn to one source: the Inova hospital chain. Inova has another role in the CBS affiliate’s Family Health features: It’s the sole sponsor of them. The segments raise a question that has dogged the relationship between health-care organizations and TV stations for years: Should such feature stories be called news reports or advertising — or an ill-defined hybrid of both?

‘3 Degree Guarantee’: Service Or Shtick?
