List Brian Kilgore among the easily offended. He recently penned a piece for The Huffington Post titled, “Don’t Insult PR People by Calling Them Marketers.”
The offending part is the Globe and Mail, which called CBC’s new boss a former “marketing and public relations executive.”
Marketing and public relations are different, Kilgore asserts.
The piece is actually more of a 101-level “This is what PR is and this is what marketing is—see, aren’t they different?”
