Cash-for-influence PR disaster at Washington Post

You know how journalists (and all news organisations) are the good guys – cutting the BS, defending the truth – and PRs are all duplicitous schemers only driven by money and manipulation? Well, shock horror! here’s another case showing how some news organisations have no idea when it comes to PR, and no care for abuse of power: The Washington Post has been offering PR people the chance to buy (at up to $250,000) dinner-date access to political insiders, business leaders, Obama administration officials and Washington Post reporters. Sheeez! The things revenue shortfalls will force some papers to do huh??
