 MediaChannel.org - ISSUE GUIDES | PR Unspun
To many anticorporate activists, consumer advocates and media critics, the public relations industry is an insidious manipulator, exploiting powerful relationships with the press and public officials and relying on devious propaganda techniques to orchestrate public perception for the benefit of business and political clients.
To John Stauber, longtime PR industry watcher and critic, public relations has led to the "overall management of public opinion and policy by the few." The highly sophisticated techniques used by PR firms and the high cost of their services, he asserts, create an environment where corporations can manufacture and control public perception.
In fact, he argues, it is precisely the communications techniques of public relations that allow ideas to be tested in the courts of media and public opinion, enabling democracy to function.
