Subject: My Way XXXIII - Hypocrisy(3)...
Congratulations, Jeff, your latest, "PR and corruption theater," is a step in the right direction.
Today was about public relations -- but not about the public.
Remember, my post, "My Way XXX - Hypocrisy(2)..." dated Jul 11, where I concluded:
Sorry, Jeff, but WE need to ask what WE will do to correct the cause of News Corp's corrupt culture.
Obviously, I am happy to see you using the "WE" expression; however, you still have a ways to go. This problem is NOT about public relations, it is about that "institutional journalism." And you are part of that problem.
You might say that "public relations" is a symptom, while "Institutional journalism" is a cause -- you don't treat symptoms, you treat causes -- the medical profession understands that bit of wisdom.
And, as Dr. Phil might say, "You can't solve a problem until you take ownership of the problem -- accept responsibility for your contribution to the problem."
How about it?? Are you guys ready to start discussing solutions.
