  •  Are they following the BP model of running ads (9+ / 0-)

    talking about how great the Gulf Coast is now?

    These corporate PR flacks have a lot of brass, as the Big Dog would say.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

      some kind of new public relations for corporations that have totally screwed the public over.  It isn't only BP, but also Goldman Sachs, and now AT&T.  AT&T shares dropped after they lied to customers about prices, the crappy product, and then charged whatever they wanted once they agreed to a package.  AT&T not only basically lied and blackmailed customers into packages for Uverse by charging them $200.00 if they dropped service before a year was up, but they lied about installation charges.  They'd tell people it was like a hundred dollars and then people were getting bills for $300.00 to $400.00.  They are now running ads saying they will stick with the prices they quoted customers, OK, but too late.  For those that have had to deal with that nightmare company, there is no trust left to go back to them, no matter how many ads they run.  Honestly, they hounded people, overcharged them, forced products on them they didn't want (as part of package deal) and then they flooded people with letters, advertising and e-mails.  AT&T was like having a stalker.
