PRSA Comments on Ethical Blogging Practices in ‘Ragan’s PRDaily’

Keith Trivitt, associate director of public relations for the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) is quoted in a March 14, 2012, article in Ragan’s PRDaily about ethical blogging practices for corporations. Discussing the merits of a new initiative to establish standards for aggregation and ethics in blogging, Trivitt says that for corporate bloggers, “Attribution and disclosure are a must. If you're not willing to disclose where you found the content you are writing about in your post, and attribute that to the original source, then you should not write it in a corporate blog post.”
The initiative is being led by a group called Council on Ethical Blogging and Aggregation, which includes the editors of Esquire, The Atlantic, New York magazine, Slate, among others.
