The Center for Media and Democracy, a non-profit organization that works on "investigating and exposing public relations spin and propaganda", has exposed PowerTV's spin tactics.

So far, we've documented 27 forums that have banned PowerTV.

Jon Nguyen ("powerjon"), a 21-year old PowerTV stealth marketer, has claimed to own 7 different cars (depending on which forum he's posting), including a "1990 Ford Focus", a car that wasn't even manufactured until 2000.
