Regarding “journalist” Rupert O’Dwyer’s recent screed about the Public Relations Society of America:
“Journalists should be honest, fair and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information. Journalists should: […] Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.”
Writing a prescribed course of action and then listing the names and email addresses of the “Top 50 Society Chapter Presidents” is “advocacy” – not news reporting. Just sayin’.
In other news, the crickets who have been chirping during O’Dwyer’s non-response to the phone and website hacking allegations against his organization are getting really tired.
