Friday a TechCrunch writer released the following controversial article, blasting PR professionals, and declaring a war was taking place among journalists versus PR folks. Among his statements: “Current estimates have PR people now outnumbering journalists 3 to 1.”

Here’s just a piece of the article…

“There’s currently something going on in the outskirts of the tech world that’s a bit sensitive, so no one really likes to talk about it: we (journalists, bloggers, etc) are at war with the PR industry.

That sentence alone will throw the PR flacks into a tizzy. “Hyperbole!” “Sexy statement, no substance!” “Don’t believe everything you read!” And all the other bullshit they typically spew to blunt interesting concepts into dull, gray PR-friendly dribble. We are at war.”
