Three months ago I wrote about information viruses. Now we have a new instance of such a virus.
When asked why democracy was not taking hold in Iraq, Bush said that it was because the people of Iraq are still traumatized by Saddam’s rule, and that Saddam killed all the Mandelas. (Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter in South Africa.)
This Bush's saying 'Saddam killed all the Mandelas' being right or wrong, still people repeat it. So this is the main point in public relations: to build a construction to be repeated by the public.
A PR tip to make the public talk about you and propagate your words is to launch an information virus capable of self-propagating.
