Joe Honick (Aug. 30, 2013): So tell us, Fraser, correct as you are in your concerns, which PR firm turns down some 'interesting' clients when the fees are large and the characters may be questionable? Is that not when the purveyors of advice then call the tasks: "Crisis Public Relations?"
Bill Huey (Aug. 28, 2013): And the Red Sox gave A-Rod a lot of sympathy points by throwing at him four times in a row, finally plunking him on the last pitch. Then the slugger hit an absolute bomb out in center field, which is all Yankees fans care about anyway.
This Tacopina thing is a real New York style media street fight, which few people get and doesn't travel well.
arthursolomon (Aug. 28, 2013): Fraser-- at least somewhere in the article wasn't there space for a line about the unethical behavior of the commissioner's office for leaking -- drip, drip, drip -- information to the media over many months as they tried to tarnish A-Rod's already tarnished career? Seems like many of the stories condemning A-Rod, this is a little one sided. I'm not a defender of A-Rod and I don't approve of his conduct, but he didn't fleece people by providing supposedly expert information like the Wall Street players continually do as they try to get richer on commissions, nor did he rob or kill anyone. The only person he damaged was himself.
