Frontiers of PR

President Bush continues to set new standards for public accountability that other PR professionals can only watch and hope to emulate.

Seriously, these things do have trickle-down effects. Any significant decline in public-sector accountability makes life oh so much easier for people like me who do PR for government in our day jobs. Everytime Bush and/or his team says "screw off" successfully, we all are given a tiny fraction more license to treat the press similarly in our own lives. I'd say this sort of thing is symptomatic of a general decline in the media's power to demand accountability unto themselves, across North America.
