Another Take of PR's History: Promoting 'Apocalypse'
 
Following up on yesterday's post on the origins of public relations in the Colorado Coal Strike, we have another take on a historical perspective on PR — unflattering in that PR as promoted by Edward Benays is associated with propaganda, Adolf Hitler and a distracted public. All of which points to a coming "apocalypse." Wow, that's a heavy burden to bear, but its a critique worth being mindful of. PR at its best is a craft of service and reliable counsel. Clients advance themselves by being of service, genuine service, to others. We've got to keep to the high road as "apocalypse cometh".
