Uber, but for corporate PR debacles

You’ve probably heard by now that Uber is in extreme crisis mode. More so than usual, even!
Why? To sum it up, the company’s SVP of business attended a private event packed with prominent journalists…and suggested that his company would spend a million dollars on “opposition research” to smear those who publish negative stories about Uber. For some reason, Emil Michael thought that every single word spoken at said event would be “off the record.”
It gets much, much worse.
