“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.”

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.
