PR isn’t the “dark side” any more for journalists,according to a post in a PR consulting blog.
The post is amusing, if not exactly stop-the-presses news.
The post is from http://www.ragan.com, a PR consulting web site. Modern PR — late l9th/early 20th century — was created by journalists such as Ivy L. Lee who saw the nice old funny singing philanthropic children-loving side of the most hated man in America — John D. Rockefeller. Since those days, PR has been a frequent destination for journalists who, for whatever reasons, never drank the kool-aid about the nobility of journlism/satanism of public relations.
