Update: Response to “The Flack Over Flacks”

Yesterday on CBS Sunday Morning, Gil Schwartz — Executive Vice President, Corporate Communications, CBS — gave viewers his own thoughts on Andrew Cohen’s essay from three weeks ago. He rebuts Cohen’s argument by offering solid examples to show that PR professionals are not flacks, in fact they provide a valuable service to journalists by arranging interviews, providing detailed information and more. In addition to his role at CBS, Schwartz also is an author and columnist for the New York Times and Forbes under the pseudonym Stanley Bing.
