000103 Stuart Ewen - Public Relations: Corporate Spin and Propaganda

Current events are routinely packaged by spin doctors and image consultants. The US has the largest public relations industry in the world. It is a major societal force in influencing and shaping public opinion. The number of PR workers far exceeds journalists. Professional spinmeisters churn out stories that are favourable to the corporations that hire them. These stories are then leaked into the media acquifer and turn up on TV, radio, newspapers and magazines.

Stuart Ewen is professor of media studies at Hunter College. His book All Consuming Images was the basis for the award-winning PBS series, The Public Mind. He also authored PR! A Social History of Spin.
