BP is very good at the game of public relations and over the past weeks has put its efforts on that front into overdrive. Have you wondered why there is a slick television commercial appearing just about every 30 minutes on both commercial and cable television networks? Also, some may question why every single day BP has a full page advertisement in every newspaper in the country. Those are questions that should be answered by the oil giant, especially when you consider BP is stalling the payment of claims to victims of the massive oil spill. It’s pretty obvious that BP is trying to gain favor with the media outlets, using them to change the public’s opinion on the company’s bad conduct, and that can’t be allowed to happen.
Thus far, the advertising cost to BP has to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Its message is, in a nut shell, “we are a good, caring company, run by men from the Gulf Coast who are concerned about the situation folks on the coast have found themselves in.” It’s a “feel good message” that is costing BP a small fortune, but it is doing absolutely nothing for BP’s victims. Somehow, that just doesn’t seem right.
