DannyBrown.me on Why the Love/Hate Relationship Between Journalists, Bloggers and PR Isn’t Just About Bad PR
Lazy PR pitches and questionable PR methods have heightened the divide between PR agencies and the news outlets they depend on to feature their clients’ story. Brown approaches this from the PR side to show the public relations industry is not always to blame.
In his feature, he highlights the growing trend of paid blogging and how a lack of journalistic experience and editorial guidance is now putting journalism and blogging into a poorer light. He questions ethics versus monetary gain and where it leaves bloggers as citizen journalists in the eyes of the consumer and readers.
