More on Armstrong...

Armstrong Williams has caught a lot of flak -- but what about the "flacks" that hired him. (Not the Department of Education, but the middleman in this affair.)

Well, Ketchum PR is now "ketching" it for not stepping forward with a mea culpa. Elizabeth Albrycht says their initial silence became deafening in her CorporatePR blog.

Six days after the scandal broke, Ketchum CEO Ray Kotcher (pictured left) published this letter in PR Week.
"For our part, Ketchum has begun a thorough review of all existing federal contracts and is retaining an outside firm to conduct a complete process that will surely yield recommendations to improve transparency as it relates to government contracts."
