Addendum: While I am on this subject, I believe that spokesperson-hood should be banned by law. I am sick of company CEOs addressing the public through spokespersons. I want to hear what these people have to say for themselves or in defense of actions that they have undertaken on behalf of their companies, and more importantly, sometimes the press might have questions for them (the CEOs), and one cannot achieve this kind of interactive communication through spokespersons. Why are we as a society even allowing spokespersons to exist? Why can't people who are responsible for businesses be the ones to answer questions and address issues? It's like I said earlier: the use of a spokesperson is very close to some form of deception. If not that, then it is manipulation (of public opinion), or if not that, is some kind of evasive tactics.
Under my rule, spokesperson-hood would be made illegal.
