Entertainment comes off as a slime-y, misconceiving and lying industry; public relations can sometimes receive a similar reputation, but I hope to prove those ideas wrong.
In order to deconstruct these conceived ideas, I hold myself to high standards. This blog will delve into multiple perspectives and opinions within the entertainment and public relations industries. I intend to be authentic and respectful of the fact that everyone’s point of view is different. I also intend to check my facts and remain truthful and honest.
I promise you this:
To be authentic and honest. Facts are facts and opinions are opinions — I promise to clearly decipher the two within my writing because I know fact and opinion can sometimes be mixed up and misleading in entertainment. I will double check sources and credibility so I can ensure you are receiving only the most honest and truthful information. I also promise to be authentic in my own opinion and be myself.
To be fair and respectful. I will take into consideration all sides of a story and several different opinions. I promise to never plagiarize and to never oversimplify or over-exaggerate information. I will never publish information I know is inaccurate without announcing it is. I will never advertise the companies I work for or have worked for in the past, but please acknowledge that my opinion may be different than these organizations or companies.
To minimize harm. Especially in entertainment, peoples reputation can be destroyed with one word. I promise to always consider peoples best assets and to show compassion for those who may have been affected adversely by media or others. I will remain sensitive to peoples opinions and reputations. I promise to show good taste, be cautious and avoid pandering to cause curiosity.
Most importantly, stay true to myself and my passions. The reason I love public relations so much is that you can use it for so many causes, topics and uses. I’m ready to explore what those mean to me and how I can incorporate my many passions, talents and interests into my public relations work. But with all that being said, I promise to stay true to myself.
