0 Reviews
We are living in what one author describes as "highly promotional times." Governments, corporations, non-profits, and special interest groups all have spin doctors trying to turn the news to their advantage. This increasingly incestuous connection between practitioners of public relations and practitioners of journalism has resulted in a troubling shift in power. Public Relations and the Press examines how this shift came to be and explores the questions it raises about the role of media in a democratic society and the future of journalism.
