St. Louis-based FleishmanHillard is one of the PR agencies that said it
would refrain from editing Wikipedia entries of clients without
following Wikipedia procedures. The statement comes after months of
tension between Wikipedia and the PR industry over efforts by some
agencies to edit entries.


  • D.J. Fone says:

    WHATTT???? Public relations flacks and hornblowers trying to influence Wikipedia to put a positive spin on the liars and scammers they rep? Surely you jest! And people actually wonder why serious journalists ignore the CEO’s gatekeepers and seek out the lowly frontliners to get the real truth about the corporate schemes that keep destroying America.

  • Great Caesar's Ghost says:

    Mr. Fone, you are correct in one assumption, that being Corporate spin…however other corporates like to re-spin their competition as evil and money grubbing…one must have adequate support to counter specious allegations.

    Al Fleishman was as close to genius as one could get, in his chosen field. He also had a sense of decency and common courtesy to validate the PR. In the book, “Under the Influence” (BUSCH) Gussie was allowed to confront Al Cervantes at His Honor’s home regarding the cancellation of AB sales at the the ballpark…he did so in Busch fashion by immediately insulting the Mayor’s wife at their front door…It took 100 clydesdales in a parade honoring His Honor to restore AB beer at the park. NEVER insult a proud Spainiard’s wife for fear of serious retribution. Al took that to the bank, and Busch survived.
