This week’s topic of the week is for both classes – PRCA 2330 & PRCA 3334.

Discuss the portrayal of public relations in mass media. Are the images helpful or hurtful to the field? Can/should these images be changed? How?

Did you choose PR as a major due to something you saw in any of these mediated images (i.e. Olivia Pope, “Scandal”)?

If you are a fan of “Scandal” you will understand what I mean in the following questions (even if you don’t watch it, everyone needs to respond to these questions): how far are you willing to go for a client? Hide a dead body? Lie to the press?  Are you willing to lay down your personal ethics in order to accomplish a task for a client? Why/why not?
