Toxic sludge is good for you
- Main contributor
Tracks the development of the public relations (PR) industry from early efforts to win popular American support for World War I to the role of crisis management in controlling damage to corporate images. The video analyzes the tools public relations professionals use to shift our perceptions, including as an example the coordinated PR campaign to slip genetically engineered food past public scrutiny. Features commentary by PR Watch founder John Stauber, author of the book of the same name, as well as by cultural scholars Mark Crispin Miller and Stuart Ewen.
Stauber, John C. (John Clyde), 1953-; Miller, Mark Crispin; Ewen, Stuart; Goodman, Amy, 1957-
