The public relations profession is one that has garnered scrutiny for many decades. While the profession can be conducted with class, dignity and transparency, many instances involving lapse of judgement and honesty have added to the negative reputation. One such instance was the Bridgestone Tire incident of 2000. This event was particularly disastrous due to the nature of the problem, its effect on consumers, and the lack of action taken.
