PR/Media Week in Review 12-14-2008

Mark Rose, Editor, PRBlogNews, PR/Media Week in ReviewIt was the week of the swindler, the thief, the profane, double-dealing Governor, the blood sport of Illinois politics and the sociopathic Wall Street money manager. Marc S. Dreier, “one of New York’s most accomplished lawyers, brazenly swindled some of the city’s savviest investors,” (NYTimes), while Bernard Madoff was perpetrating the largest fraud ever (Wall Street Journal), $50 billion, making Dreier’s $100 million damage seem like chicken feed, while Blago Blagojevich was peddling Senate seats on the open market like bogus flat screen TVs (Washington Post). 

It was a week to celebrate unrepentant greed and corruption as the tightening vise of a deep recession forces dark dealings to the light of public scrutiny. As U.S. auto makers and the unions will attest – this is a great climate for crisis communications.
