Picture of the Week: Journalism and public relations

Section:

A George Orwell quotation sums up the current media firestorm perfectly

 

We at The Steeple Times thought this image of a lady holding up a piece of cardboard summed up the events of the weekend perfectly.

 

As a debate rages about the future of the BBC and the role of social media in the “outing” of personalities in connection to alleged stories of abuse, the words of George Orwell ring utterly true:

 

“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed. Everything else is public relations.”

 

For this simple reason, we make it our picture of the week. This scandal should not be brushed under the carpet.

  1. New Age Public Relations dynamics are based on the foundations of spin. The majority of Public relations practitioners who represent the rich and famous will admit that they are not in the business of telling the truth.
    They don’t do the truth, it is bad for business.
