Edelman CEO Responds To GawkerFrom Richard Edelman, CEO of the massive PR agency Edelman, in response to yesterday's tip about Edelman encouraging lying to reporters during media training: "Your post on Edelman today about an unnamed ad and marketing person alleging that we instruct our clients to lie as part of our media training is completely false and needs to be taken down. you bet we take ethics seriously. We advise our clients to be transparent, to tell the truth always but especially in crisis. That is only way to be in business for 55 years as a reputable pr firm. So if you want to discuss then call me at [Redacted]. I hope to hear from you. I don't go for cheap shots from undisclosed sources."
