On Fox Business Network, Miramar-Based Airline Gets Free Advertising

It looks like journalism. But if Spirit Airlines didn't pay for this segment on Fox Business Network, it should have. CEO Ben Baldanza gets five minutes of cable time to field questions that all have the same answer: because we have low fares.

They ran out of time before the anchor could ask about Baldanza's tie, but you can bet he couldn't find a better one because of the low fares.
