Ihlazo lakutsha nje

I-NYT ibhengeza ubuchule bokubonisana be-FTI ngokuqinileyo kwishishini leoyile: Kwi Ngomhla kaNovemba 11, 2020 inqaku leNew York Times, U-Hiroko Tabuchi utyhila indlela i-FTI Consulting "eye yanceda ngayo uyilo, abasebenzi kunye nemibutho kunye newebhusayithi ezixhaswa ngemali ziinkampani zamandla ezinokubonakala ngathi zimele inkxaso yamalinge e-fossil-fuel." Ngokusekwe kudliwanondlebe nabalishumi elinababini ababesebenza kwi-FTI kunye namakhulu amaxwebhu angaphakathi, u-Tabuchi unika ingxelo ngendlela i-FTI ebeka iliso ngayo kubaphembeleli bendalo, eqhuba amaphulo ezopolitiko e-astroturf, enabasebenzi beendaba ezimbini kunye neendawo zolwazi kwaye wabhala amanqaku e-pro-shishini malunga ne-fracking, amatyala emozulu kunye nokunye okushushu Imiba yeqhosha kwicala lase-Exxon Mobile.

'Ifayile yeMonsanto' ihlazo

Iintatheli kwi U-Le Monde uxele ngoMeyi 9 ukuba bafumene "Ifayile yeMonsanto" eyenziwe yinkampani yonxibelelwano noluntu uFleishmanHillard edwelisa "ulwazi oluninzi" malunga ne-200 yeentatheli, abezopolitiko, izazinzulu kunye nabanye ababonwa ngathi banokuba nefuthe kwingxoxo ye-glyphosate eFrance.

I-Ketchum kunye neFleishmanHillard baleka i-GMO PR salvo

Ngo-2013, ishishini lezolimo lacofa uFleishmanHillard noKetchum, bobabini bangabanini bakaOmnicom, PR ekhubekisayo ukulungisa umfanekiso ye-GMO kunye nemveliso yokubulala izitshabalalisi. Kukhethwe iMonsanto I-FleishmanHillard ukuba "yenze ngokutsha" igama layo phakathi "kwenkcaso ekrakra" kukutya okuguqulweyo, ngokweNgxelo yeHolmes. Ngexesha elifanayo, uFleishmanHillard naye waba ngu Iarhente ye-PR yerekhodi yeBayer, kunye neBhunga loLwazi lweBiotechnology (i-CBI) -iqela lezorhwebo kuxhaswa ngemali Bayer (Monsanto), Corteva (DowDuPont), Syngenta kunye ne-BASF-baqesha inkampani yezobudlelwane noluntu yaseKetchum ukuze iphumeze umkhankaso wentengiso obizwa ngokuba ziiGMO Answers.

Amaqhinga okujikeleza aqeshwe zezi femu kubandakanya "wooing mama blogger"Kunye nokusebenzisa amazwi ekuthiwa" azimeleyo "kwiingcali"susa ukudideka nokungathembani”Malunga nee-GMO. Nangona kunjalo, ubungqina buvele ukuba iifemu ze-PR zihlele kwaye zabhala ezinye zeengcali "ezizimeleyo". Umzekelo, amaxwebhu afunyenwe yi-US Right to Know abonisa oko Kubhalwe uKetchum Izithuba zeGMO Iimpendulo ezazisayinwe ngu Unjingalwazi weYunivesithi yaseFlorida Ozibanga ezimeleyo njengoko wayesebenza emfihlekweni neMonsanto kwiiprojekthi ze-PR. Usekela-mongameli omkhulu kwiFleishmanHillard ihlelwe intetho a UC Davis uprofesa kwaye wamqeqesha indlela "yokuphumelela abantu egumbini" e Ingxoxo ye-IQ2 yokukholisa uluntu ukwamkela ii-GMOs. UKetchum naye wanika unjingalwazi amanqaku okuthetha Udliwanondlebe lonomathotholo malunga nophando lwesayensi.

Izifundiswa bezizezona zibalulekileyo kubathunywa kwimizamo yokuphembelela ukuchaswa kwelebheli ye-GMO INew York Times ngo-2015. "Oonjingalwazi / abaphandi / izazinzulu banomnqwazi omkhulu omhlophe kule mpikiswano kunye nenkxaso kumazwe abo, ukusuka kwezopolitiko ukuya kubavelisi," uBill Mashek, usekela-mongameli e-Ketchum, ubhalele unjingalwazi weYunivesithi yaseFlorida. "Qhubeka!" Iqela lezorhwebo le-CBI lichithe ngaphezulu kweedola ezili-11 yezigidi kwiiMpendulo zeGMO zikaKetchum ukusukela nge2013, ngokweerekhodi zerhafu.

Impendulo kulawulo lweengxaki zeempendulo ze-GMO

Njengomqondiso omnye wempumelelo njengesixhobo se-PR spin, Iimpendulo zeGMO zazinjalo Uluhlu olufutshane kuluhlu lweentengiso zeCIO ngo-2014 kudidi “lweCrisis Management & Issue Management.” Kule vidiyo ye-CLIO, uKetchum uqhayisa malunga nokuphindaphinda kabini ukujongwa kweendaba ze-GMO kunye "nokulinganisa i-80% yokunxibelelana" kwi-Twitter. Uninzi lwala manxibelelwano kwi-Intanethi avela kwiiakhawunti ezibonakala zizimele kwaye azichazi unxibelelwano lwabo kumkhankaso we-PR womzi mveliso.

Nangona ividiyo kaKetchum ibanga ukuba iimpendulo zeGMO ziya "kuchaza ukuqaqamba" ngolwazi oluvela kwiingcali "ezingenanto ihluziweyo okanye engacaciswanga, kwaye kungekho mazwi athulisiweyo," isicwangciso seMonsanto PR sicebisa ukuba inkampani ibalwe kwiimpendulo zeGMO ukunceda ukujikeleza iimveliso zayo ngendlela elungileyo. Inkqubo ye- uxwebhu ukusukela ngo-2015 Uluhlu lweempendulo zeGMO phakathi "kwamaqabane oshishino" oko kunokunceda ukukhusela i-Roundup kumbandela womhlaza; Kwicandelo "lezixhobo" kwiphepha le-4, isicwangciso sidwelise amakhonkco kwiGMO Answers ecaleni kwamaxwebhu eMonsanto anokunxibelelana nomyalezo wenkampani othi "iGlyphosate ayiyiyo i-carcinogenic."

Le vidiyo yeKetchum yathunyelwa kwiwebhusayithi ye-CLIO kwaye yasuswa emva kokuba siyibizile.

UHillard noKetchum: Iimbali zobuqhetseba

Kutheni nayiphi na inkampani ibeka iFleishmanHillard okanye uKetchum phambi kwemizamo yokukhuthaza ukuthembeka kunzima ukuyiqonda, ngenxa yeembali zabo zenkohliso ezibhaliweyo. Umzekelo:

Kude kube ngo-2016, uKetchum wayenguye PR eqinileyo yeRussia kunye neVladimir Putin. Ngoku ka amaxwebhu afunyenwe yiProPublica, U-Ketchum wabanjwa ebeka i-pro-Putin op-eds phantsi kwamagama "abaqeqeshi ababonakala bezimeleyo" kwiindawo ezahlukeneyo zeendaba. Ngo-2015, i Ukubandakanya urhulumente waseHonduran waqesha uKetchum ukuzama ukubuyisela kwisimo sayo emva kwesikrelemnqa sorhwaphilizo esigidi sezigidi.

Amaxwebhu avuza uMama uJones bonisa ukuba uKetchum wasebenza nenkampani yabucala yezokhuselo "eyayihlola iGreenpeace kunye neminye imibutho yezendalo ukusukela ngasekupheleni kweminyaka yoo-1990 ukuya kuthi ga ngo-2000, bephanga amaxwebhu asuka kwimigqomo yenkunkuma, bezama ukutyala abasebenzi abasebenza ngokufihlakeleyo phakathi kwamaqela, ukufaka iiofisi, ukuqokelela iirekhodi zeefowuni zabaphembeleli, nokungena kwiintlanganiso eziyimfihlo. ” UHillard wabanjwa esebenzisa iindlela zokuziphatha ezingekho semthethweni ngokuchasene nempilo yoluntu kunye nabameli bolawulo lwecuba egameni lenkampani yecuba uRJ Reynolds, ngokophando olwenziwe nguRuth Malone kwi Ijenali yaseMelika yezeMpilo yoLuntu. Ifemu ye-PR yade yabhala ngokufihlakeleyo iintlanganiso zolawulo lwecuba kunye neenkomfa.

UHillard wayenjalo inkampani yobudlelwane noluntu kwiZiko leCuba, umbutho wecuba wokucenga umbutho, kangangeminyaka esixhenxe. Kwinqaku leWashington Post lango-1996, uMorton Mintz wabalisa ibali malunga nendlela uFleishmanHillard kunye neZiko lecuba abaliguqule ngayo iZiko leZempilo elisempilweni laba liqela eliphambili kwishishini lecuba kwimizamo yalo yokuphelisa inkxalabo yoluntu ngobungozi bokutshaya. Ketchum ikwasebenzele nomzi mveliso wecuba.

Zombini ezi femu ziye zasebenza ngamanye amaxesha omcimbi. UHillard ubenjalo kuqeshwe amaphulo okulwa ukutshaya. Ngo-2017, uKetchum wasungula i spin-off firm ebizwa Hlakulela ukwenza imali kwimarike yokutya ekhulayo, nangona i-GMO Answers zikaKetchum zikuhlazisile ukutya okuphilayo, zibanga ukuba abathengi bahlawula "ipremiyamu ephezulu" yokutya okungangcono kunokutya okulinywa ngokwesiqhelo.

Ngaphantsi kwesibhengezo saMandla kwiNzulu, iprojekhthi eyenzela i-Independent Petroleum Association of America, i-FTI iye yaxuba iintatheli ngee-imeyile ezithi "ukusebenzisana" phakathi kwamatshantliziyo aluhlaza kunye nee-AGs zikarhulumente, kwaye iphakamise imibuzo malunga nezibonelelo ze-InsideClimate's Rockefeller.
