Default Cruise News Bias?

Why is it when Oceania Cruises puts out a press release regarding bookings it shows up on CruiseMates news page "verbatim" as written by Oceania Cruises? Why is it when Regent Seven Seas Cruises puts out a press release regarding two ships sailing World Cruises in 2009 it does not show up on CruiseMates news page? I would say that it might have something to do with a former CruiseMates staffer that now works for Oceania but I don't think that that is the case as their are many press releases on the CruiseMates news page. I am just wondering what happened to the report regarding Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Mariner both sailing World Cruises at the same time.

Now, for those that may take this the wrong way, it is meant as totally tongue in cheek.

Marc, can you say... personal bias?

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

I certainly follow the news in Cruisemates and I think they do a fair job in covering what news is out there. With so many cruise lines, some things are bound to be left behind. But as far as I am concerned, Cruisemates is fair to all cruise lines.
