The machinations of corporate thought-control experts, as propaganda expert Edward Bernays cautioned, have to be carefully concealed from public view.

In Toxic Sludge is Good for You, they exposed the antics of the PR agencies employed to present a favourable image of the industries with the worst pollution records. In Trust Us, We’re Experts, they explained how the media are deployed to instill and perpetuate a favourable public perception of the transnational corporations.
