  •  More Spin (0+ / 0-)

    I understand the industry. I've paid PR flacks to have "journalists" publish content that I wrote and the PR flack edited in trade journals for over a dozen years. I've been reading those journals for 20-30 years, knowing that's where plenty of the content comes from. And I personally am sometimes paid as an expert panelist, selected by the forum because my expertise sells their products.

    Nevertheless, in 18 minutes you went from "never once did cash change hands" to "there were times where I did pay for segments" and "it's a fine line between PR and advertising". A switch that spin can't change. And since all PR can give is spin, you're giving more spin. Calling the facts "a cheap point" merely cheapens the spin.
