Holding the balance of power

As I finished posting about Prince’s new album, I was reminded of the balance of power game.

If you want a radio station to promote your product on air, you pay them. Radio stations pay royalties to artists to play their music. The Mail on Sunday has paid Prince to distribute his new album to their readers. Advertisers pay newspapers to include inserts in the newspaper.

Spot the contradictions.
