Pro-War Rally Gets PR Help

"Shirley & Banister Public Affairs helped put together one of the largest pro-Bush rallies during the Iraq war on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., last Saturday, starring Republican heavyweights G. Gordon Liddy, former senator and actor Fred Thompson and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, among others," O'Dwyer's PR Daily reports. "The event, which drew between five and ten thousand people, was staged for longtime client Citizens United Foundation. ... The firm credentialed 60 reporters and landed coverage on NBC, ABC, CNN and in The Washington Post, The Washington Times and Associated Press."
