Daily Real Estate News  |  March 27, 2006  |   NAR Takes Issue With Good Morning America Segment NAR President Thomas M. Stevens is asking the producers of ABC TV'S "Good Morning America" for equal time after the show ran a misleading and misinformed consumer-advice segment about real estate practitioners. The segment, which aired March 24 under the title, "Tricks of the Trade: Confessions of a REALTORŪ," claims consumers shouldn't trust everything practitioners say. The segment "gave a very inaccurate, grossly misleading and unfair depiction of the nation's REALTORSŪ," says Stevens. "Several of the allegations made by the guest described practices that violate the REALTORŪ Code of Ethics, such as intentionally misrepresenting a property and could be grounds for suspension of membership. Because of the Code, all REALTORSŪ know such behavior is wrong." Stevens called upon the producers to balance the show's coverage by giving REALTORSŪ the chance to respond.
