Abstract (Summary)
The Relationship Between Journalists and Public Relations Practitioners During Crises Cassie A. Waugh The relationship between journalists and public relations practitioners has long been perceived as strained at best. The Sago Mine disaster brought crisis communications to the forefront when the media reported inaccurate information during the event. Journalists at a panel discussion made claims that this could possibly have been avoided had there been better public relations at the scene. Does a crisis change the relationship between journalists and public relations practitioners? If so, how does it change? If not, what is the status of the relationship to begin with? This study examines those questions and sheds light on the issues surrounding crisis communications and journalist-practitioner relationships.
