First Ogilvy... now Edelman... so how is Weber Shandwick staying out of headlines re: controversial clients?

They're all as bad as each other. Ketchum wrote Putin's WaPo oped few years ago and represented Russia's interests. Fleischman represented USA gymnastics during the Nassar stuff, working dilogently to keep a pedo out of the news, and to protect an org that protected him ahead of their teenage athletes. Also Monsanto. Before Edelman's current issue they represented the American Petroleum Institute. Before Ogilvy's current issue they represented BP during the gulf oil spill. PR is a real tricky place to have a conscience.
