Rachel to Mark Penn: Put Up or Shut Up

Rachel Maddow responds to Mark Penn’s Burson-Marsteller employee memo challenging the integrity of her report last week on PR for Evil. Penn wrote that they "never took a dime from Blackwater" — even though a B-M flunky took credit for preparing Blackwater CEO for his hearing before Congress.

Rachel poses the fascinating option: if Burson-Marsteller represented Blackwater, but "never took a dime" from them, was Blackwater a pro bono client? And if they were a pro bono client, does that make Burson-Marsteller more or less Evil?

Original Oxdown diary, with Rachel’s entire Burson-Marsteller report, is here.
