Groups with "releases" in their names are locations where press releases are placed. Unlike regular news, which is written by wire service journalists, these releases come directly from the companies and organizations who are covered. The information is unfiltered by the perspective of the wire services; it's more direct and faster (since one doesn't have to wait for the story to be written), but doesn't have the balancing points of view that come with newswriting. Press releases are best viewed as a supplement to the regular news service, or as a way of keeping close tabs on an industry.

To avoid confusion, the press releases are separated from the regular news in the "releases" groups.
