“Publicity is an evil substitute, and the art of publicity a black art. But it has come to stay. Every year adds to the potency and to the finality of its judgements.”

 — Justice Learned Hand, 1952

    Interesting that this quote still remains true today, even though it originated in 1952.

    I agree with him on the account that publicity has become about persuading the audience and tricking. For example “pseudo-events.” Making events for the intent of publishing or advertising.

    Nice use of other course readings, Danica. Making connections is important for this class and for PR work.
