Jay Rosen on Putting the Public Back in Public Relations

Jay Rosen is a leading and innovative authority and one of my favorite voices on the subject of new media and journalism. I’ve admired his writing and vision for several years and often reference his work.

Jay Rosen teaches Journalism at New York University, where has been on the faculty since 1986. Rosen is the author of PressThink, a weblog about journalism and its ordeals, which he introduced in September 2003. He also blogs at the Huffington Post.

I’m humbled to share with you Jay’s thoughts on my new book with Deirdre Breakenridge, “Putting the Public Back in Public Relations.Thank you Jay, I truly appreciate it..

“Movers of the message, now hear this: the public on the other end of the transaction isn’t waiting around for you to reach it with your pitch. Let Brian Solis explain these things to you, and you will be far, far better off.”

— Jay Rosen
