Gentry, PD Erase Lines Between PR and Journalism

August 28th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

Arch City Chronicle:

Gentry Trotter appears to be getting paid to write good things about Governor Matt Blunt by both the Governor and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

In her July 11 column, Deb Peterson wrote, “Trotter, known mostly for his PR mavenry, has been named special assistant to Ed Martin, Gov. Matt Blunt’s chief of staff, and communications adviser to the governor’s office.”

Evidently,the Post-Distpatch organization also hired Trotter as evidenced by his article and credited photo on the North County Journal’s website touting his government employer.

Can you say: “Conflict of interest?”
