Police PR does reporting job for tv news

I know cash is tight in commercial television news but I couldn't believe this story I was told by a broadcasting journalist working in the regions.
They told me that when journalists were invited by police to cover a major drugs raid, their local commercial tv station sent along one cameraman. For the story, the tv station got the police PR to interview the police chief in charge of the operation.
One can hardly expect the PR to do a Jeremy Paxman on someone senior they work for.
