Lies, Damn Lies & Public Relations

Program #STAJ001. Recorded in Madison, WI on February 08, 1997.

Public relations is a multi-billion dollar industry. There are now more PR agents than working journalists, and the gap is widening as Madison Avenue continues to expand. PR wizards sometimes not only spin the news but actually invent it. They organize campaigns to influence public opinion and shape legislation that benefits their corporate patrons.

The Center publishes PR Watch, an investigative quarterly. He is co-author of Toxic Sludge is Good for You and Mad Cow USA: Could the Nightmare Happen Here?
