And we wonder why people think poorly of PR as a profession

According to Odwyer:

Press Blackout
PR Society declares blackout on resignation of Prof. Gail Baker as Ethics Board chair. Members are being told PRS has no comment “at this time.” Baker, of the University of Nebraska, also is unavailable for comment as is Chancellor John Christensen, and the University PR dept.

I often use the term, ‘the cobbler’s children have no shoes,’ but this is ridiculous. The chair of the “Board of Ethics and  Professional Standards” for the Public Relations Society of America is no longer in the position and there’s “no comment?”  Excuse me for being a little flustered by this, but that’s PR 101 people.  “No comment” is a comment. Do you want that to be your comment?  At least wish the person well.
