My majors agree?

I'm double majoring in Journalism/New Media and Communication. The two do not always agree with each other because the journalist is always trying to look for the truth and the public relations person is trying to always keep the client in the best light. Though both teach you to never lie to get what you want; beyond that I have found very few similarities for the two of them.

However, Kilian writes in chapter six, "A corporate site should reach a wide range of readers without trying to be all things to all people," (115). Finally, they match! Though I think this section is more for the PR person in me than the truth finder, it's coming from a book that is brought to a Journalism class.

I like this idea because, just like in everyday life, you cannot be everything to everyone, so you cannot expect your website to do so either.
