PR’s Reputation Up Thanks to Washington Media Group
Public relations is an incessantly maligned and abused industry—right up there with oil companies and lawyers. So it's a real delight, let me tell you, to see Gregory L. Vistica, president of the Washington Media Group, featured as the Quotation of the Day in today’s New York Times:
“We basically decided on principle that we couldn't work for a country that was using snipers on rooftops to pick off its citizens.”
(Washington Media Group dropped Tunisia as a public relations client after that nation cracked down on protesters.)
