  • Jack's point is well made. PR tactics may sometimes be slimy, but that doesn't mean it's a smear. Hiring or enlisting a third party to spread something negative about your enemy or competitor is sleazy and about as common as, what, Walmart running anti Amazon ads but pretending the are ads coming from a group of small businesses? Slimy and smearing are not the same.
