These days you can even recover from sex scandals. In my experience as long as it doesn’t involve animals or children, it’s possible. Even Michael Jackson’s fans supported him during his child molestation trial (in which he was acquitted).
New York, New York (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Public relations and digital marketing expert Trent Silver, Founder and CMO of rapidly-growing agency Silver Visibility, was featured in a Forbes story about the PR battle between Alex Rodriguez, Major League Baseball and the Yankees franchise surrounding A-Rod's performance enhancing drug suspension.
The article, written by David Lariviere, discussed Alex Rodriguez's appeal of his 211-game suspension and the ensuing PR battle in the MLB, and featured crisis management commentary from Silver.
The article notes that Silver thinks A-Rod currently has a significant advantage over the corporations in the PR arena, will recover from the scandal, and eventually come clean with an authentic admission.
“These days you can even recover from sex scandals. In my experience as long as it doesn’t involve animals or children, it’s possible. Even Michael Jackson’s fans supported him during his child molestation trial (in which he was acquitted)," says Silver.
Silver also doesn't expect the MLB to engage in a tit for tat war with A-Rod; saying "I don’t think it’s their place other than protecting the integrity of the game. I think they’ll stick with generic statements."
