Public Relations

The DOD is going Hollywood. The old axiom that all publicity is good publicity definitely isn’t the case when it comes to the Bush Administration and the military so they have decided to take bids on a $20 million contract to hire a public relations firm to parse all the news coming from Iraq in search of positive press.

The contract calls for assembling a database of selected news stories and assessing their tone as part of a program to provide “public relations products” that would improve coverage of the military command’s performance, according to a statement of work attached to the proposal.

All I can say to whomever wins this contract is good luck as you will surely be earning your money in this case!
