Another Skeptical Musing on AOL CSR Firing

Chooki brings up a great point in the comments, which is how do we know that John was actually fired? There’s no proof, just a statement from the PR department.

PR is great, in 1929 Edward Bernays got people to associate smoking with women’s rights by having debutantes defiantly smoking cigarettes, scandalous at the time. Considering that half the statement is boiler plat anyway, who’s to say the rest of the chum spun by the AOL PR sluts isn’t? Goddamit, we demand pictures, preferably in gold frame like al-Zarqawi’s.

If anything, given his stellar dedication to ekking out the last dime possible, he was probably given a raise.
