Week 6 Discussion Question Arien Becker

Public relations is a strategic form of communication that builds beneficial relationships organizations and the public. To me, this kind of means that when something negative or controversial happens within an organization, they find the most positive outlook to share with the public to keep their relationships on good terms. If I was explaining this to my parents, I would tell them it’s like telling them I got a bad grade on a test in high school. They would see the grade on the report card and be like “Arien, what is this?!” and, you know, you make up something about how everyone got a bad grade in the class because you “never even learned that stuff”. Sound familiar? Or maybe you say something about how you didn’t get it but you get another chance to take the test and you’re going to study really hard. Anything to make sure they don’t think you just slacked off.
