    TransCanada Corp. is dramatically expanding its effort to win public support for its proposed $12-billion Energy East project, including an effort to target opposition groups that are gearing up to fight the project in central and eastern Canada. Documents obtained by Greenpeace and released late Monday show the embattled pipeline company has hired the world’s largest public relations firm, Edelman, which has a reputation for aggressive tactics in the United States and proposed a similar approach in Canada in a strategic plan completed in August. TransCanada spokesman James Millar said Monday the company learned valuable lessons in its battle over...

    PR Week ^ | 08/2014 | Lindsay Stein and Frank Washkuch ,
    Edelman global CEO Richard Edelman said in a conversation with an editor of Vice’s Motherboard blog that former US CEO Mark Hass was fired from the agency in part because of the way he responded to an investigation into PR agencies’ work with climate-change deniers. Quoted by Motherboard senior editor Brian Merchant, the chief executive of the world’s largest PR agency said, "We fired the head of our US [division] in part because of that stupid note he wrote, about, you know, how we don’t answer these kinds of things." In response to inquiries from the Climate Investigations Center that...

    Edeman is usually tapped with helping brands avoid or disentangle themselves from public backlash, but the global PR firm instead found itself in the hot seat this week. At issue was a blog post from media relations strategy evp Lisa Kovitz, who said the suicide of comedian Robin Williams created a PR opportunity for groups advocating for better treatment of mental illness. "As we mourn the loss of Robin Williams to depression, we must recognize it as an opportunity to engage in a national conversation," she wrote. "His death yesterday created a carpe diem moment for mental health professionals and...
  • Arbitrators protect pervert teachers

    New York Post ^ | October 10, 2013 | Campbell Brown
    And, like too many other arbitrators, Edelman makes it a priority to find ways to keep teachers in classrooms, with little apparent consideration of the impact on schools or students. This is most evident, and troubling, in sexual misconduct cases. In a breakthrough 2005 agreement, the union and DOE inserted language into the teachers contract stipulating “a mandatory penalty of discharge” to any union member “found by a hearing officer to have engaged in sexual misconduct.”

    Edelman Financial ^ | September 30, 2008 | Ric Edelman
    Until last week, we had applauded all the actions of U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Jr. His handling of the financial crisis had been flawless. However, Secretary Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke made a serious misstep last week when they presented their proposal to Congress. They called their plan a “bailout” and emphasized the need for $700 billion in funds. This proved to be a public relations disaster and has been largely responsible for the delay in getting the proposal approved by Congress. In fact, the proposal is neither a bailout nor $700 billion. Yet these are the...

    Okay, first a little background for Freepers who haven't been following all of these stories. STORY #1: Coughlin & Islam at the Pentagon Stephen Coughlin was a Pentagon analyst [in fact the ONLY Pentagon analyst] with a specialization in Koranic & Hadithic formulations of Jihad. At the urging of one Hasham Islam [also known as "Hesham H Islam"], in the office of Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England, Coughlin was fired in early January of 2008 [or late December of 2007]. After an enormous uproar in the intelligence community, and with the help of Congresswoman Sue Myrick [R-NC], Coughlin was finally...
  • 'Child Protection' Rankings of Lawmakers Ignore Pro-Life Votes

    The Children's Defense Fund has released its annual rankings of U.S. representatives and senators based on their votes on 2004 legislation affecting the lives of children. But the CDF's measure of "child protection" seems to be money -- and no pro-life bills were included in the rankings. In fact, the lawmakers who received the CDF's highest child-protection ratings are Democrats who support the legal right to abortion. And lawmakers who received the lowest ratings are mostly pro-life Republicans. "This is a dangerous time for children in America and we need to know which of our leaders are voting to protect...

    Turkey Policies on Minorities Spark Debate Fri Dec 3, 1:50 PM ET Middle East - AP By JAMES C. HELICKE, Associated Press Writer ISTANBUL, Turkey - A furor in Turkey ignited by the title of a Christian spiritual leader on a U.S. embassy invitation has underscored concerns about the largely Muslim country's treatment of minorities two weeks before the European Union (news - web sites) decides whether to open membership talks with Ankara. The problem revolved around the status of the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, a Turkish citizen and ethnic Greek. He is...

    Chrenkoff Blogspot ^ | June 1, 2004 | Interview by Polish Channel TVN24 + comments by Chrenkoff
    Marek Edelman is the last surviving military leader of the heroic Jewish Uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943. He recently spoke to a Polish television channel TVN24, and the interview has been re-published in a Polish weekly "Przekroj". It's not available anywhere else in English (or for that matter electronically), so I take this opportunity to translate and publish extensive excerpts from the interview. Edelman experienced evil many times in his long and distinguished life; he has also faced it and fought it bravely. What he has to say bears listening to. Interviewer: Not a day seems to go...

    Google, the popular Internet search engine, has excluded more than 100 Web sites from the French and German versions of its index under pressure from those nations' governments, a new study has found. The sites include many devoted to white supremacist philosophy and Nazism, with names like Jew Watch. Ben Edelman, who did the research, said "they are mostly pretty terrible pages." Mr. Edelman wrote the study with Jonathan Zittrain, a co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. They said that the issue of Internet blocking and filtering raised questions about the ability of...
