The Holmes Report, a PR industry trade newsletter, has published the results of its survey on the "best PR firms to work for." Winners included:
- Fleishman Hillard, whose employees covertly infiltrated and tape-recorded a group that works to stop teenage tobacco addiction
- Ketchum Communications, which drafted a Clorox crisis plan that called for labeling environmentalists as terrorists, and also helped fuel the diet drug craze of the 1990s
- APCO Associates, whose sleazy work for big tobacco, WorldCom and Russian robber baron Mikhail Khodorkovsky has been detailed here previously.
(Note: APCO is listed in the print edition of the Holmes Report but inexplicably doesn't appear in the online version of this story.)
