Wag The Dawg (Now you know Im a GA Boy! LOL)

 

Wag The Dog

Wag The Dog

 

So one lucky day I walked into my PRCA 2330 Intro To Public Relations class and was pleased to find out that we would be watching a movie (Wag To Dog) over the next 2 days of class!  Now anyone who has ever been in college knows that “movie days” are almost unheard of, so I knew I there had to be a catch.  

 

Here’s that catch… The Assignment!

 

  • After watching the movie, “Wag The Dog,” it is hard to even say that they have any ethics or values.  They definitely had a Selfish mentality.  But going along with the assignment, if I had to choose one of the three values discussed in Ch. 3, I’d have to say absolute, and only because they would make decisions, regardless of the possible outcomes and consequences.
  • According to the PRSA Code of Ethics, the PR practitioner just about breaks all of them.  He definitely was a lier and could care less if the public knew the truth or not.  
  • When thinking about why the title of this movie is “Wag The Dog,” I couldn’t help but think of the relationship between the PR Practitioner and the President.  In this case, the PR Practitioner is definitely wagging the tail of the president, who I believe represents the dog in this phrase.
  • I do not believe that this specific PR Practitioner gives us an accurate stereotype of a true PR Practitioner; and if he does, it is a negative one.  He was very unethical and a cruel person in general.

 

Now… back to the good stuff! LOL  I enjoyed the movie, the acting was great, and who doesn’t enjoy “Movie Days” in college ?!?

 

Until Net Time…
