1. Couldn’t agree with you more Laurel.

    Unfortunately many people who call themselves public relations professionals are only publicists these days. Gone is community relations, issues management, stakeholder relations and media relations (online and traditional). The days of public relations referring to public(s) relations are , unfortunately, largely over as the end of year bonuses prove to be a greater incentive than the desire to serve two masters: the President AND the Public.

    All is not lost however. The best PR professionals, remain steadfast and smart enough to strike a balance that works for both their Presidents *and* their Publics. Hopefully those not in the industry will not tar all with the same brush.
