18. Don't forget PR for say Facebook, Exxon etc.

For instance, whenever a story breaks about the creepy and unethical shit Facebook does, it is someone's job to go out there and pitch a phony "education" program as "philanthropy".

They probably do a cost-benefit analysis. You calculate the lowest amount you need to donate to the crap charities you run in order to offset your lousy image. It might work with the most gullible people out there.

I love corporate pr pushes for "education". The very people who benefit the most from a largely ignorant populace want to equip the same with a set of menial skills. Not to mention programming them with inane visions of what a meritocracy supposedly looks like.
