Corruption in the Industries

Are Tech Analysts (Like the Gartner Group) Corrupt?

It is believed by many in the industry that if you’re a vendor and become the customer of one of these companies, then they’ll say nice things about you. The more money you give them, the story goes, the nicer the things you’ll say.
Sounds like the car industry. So much money flows out of the hands of the manufacturers to the people who are "on the consumers' side" reviewing cars and handing out awards.
