Crisis PR, Katrina and the Bush Administration
The headline story for the past week hasn't been just the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina. Everyone from news analysts to communications specialists to bloggers are writing about the reported delay in getting water, food and other resources to New Orleans and other Gulf Coast areas hit by the storm.
Factor in Kanye West's remarks on NBC's Concert For Hurricane Relief, as well as public outcries from Seattle to Tokyo, and BINGO! You have the makings of what could lead to a public relations nightmare. How the Bush administration deals with the fallout will undoubtedly make for a compelling case study in crisis management.
