Stop attacking the PR Industry
For some reason, the Public Relations industry always seems to get a bum rap… and the latest is in the UK where headlines blare that “16 Labour MPs used taxpayers’ cash to hire a PR firm run by two ex-party workers..”
While it’s true that £151,474 was spent in the last three years, it’s necessary for politicians to have PR firms – and who better than a former political secretary for the Prime Minister?
Why is it a surprise that a pro is communicating for politicians? And if they didn’t have relationships I am sure they wouldn’t be able to do the job the right way. It’s time for the media to stop attacking the hard working people of the PR industry.
