Submission + - Microsoft pays for positive XBox One coverage, requires breaking FTC rules (kotaku.com) 1

Problematically, they also require that the review not mention anything negative and not disclose that they're getting paid, which breaks FTC disclosure rules. Microsoft has a well-known history of astroturfing, but is this the first proof of them doing it illegally?
