PR firm and the election
This article Billionaire Romney donor uses threats to silence critics by Glenn Greenwald caught my attention given the amazingly quick reaction (in my opinion) to Beverly Mann’s post Breaking news: Bain Capital wanted to lend money to GM and Chrysler for managed bankruptcies.
Beverly mentioned Bain Capital instead of Bain Consulting in the title. Also read Beverly’s responses BREAKING NEWS: Bain Capital Really, Really, REALLY Did Not Want to Lend GM and Chrysler Money For Their Managed Bankruptcies!”* and Romney reads Angry Bear*.
Not directly connected of course…but we have never had a PR firm notice us before. Thanks!
In my travels for SSA, I never once heard anyone say that the didn’t “want to depend on the govt” when they applied for their benefits. They were in Kalamazoo, or East Chicago, IN or Pekin, IL to get the benefits they by God worked and paid for. But, they weren’t there to take money out of the mouths of poor people. So, I’d like to know how these people in the same part of the country I was travelling in sound so apologetic about being retired. I suspect the conversations leading up to the questions the writer asked were doozies. Man, what a nasty, poisonous screed. Gave me creeps when I read it. NancyO
OOOPS. This one goes with Dan’s first post. NancyO
Greenwald/s article is informative on two levels. The first is obvious, the story therein contained concerning the bullying tactics and the general political behavior of the focus of the article. The second level is informative for what has not been said in the rest of the main stream media. Is Greenwald the only reporter aware of the story he describes? Seems unlikely, no? Where is the out cry from the rest of the journalists with national platforms? This second level of the problem is what allows the first level of the behavior to continue unabated. Hopefully Greenwald’s expose will generate additional back bone amongst his fellow journalists. Praise to Dan and AB for putting up the story and the link.
Really Nice Post! Thanks to the author and the Admin! Keep it up.
