"I suspect that, for quite a few bosses, what matters is not that their company be presented in a positive light but rather that they have control over their firm's image."

Actually I think you'll find that it's not their firm's image they're concerned about: it's their own.


This makes sense on a national level as well. A country with free and open debate not only will tend to benefit directly from the criticism but also will have internationally more creditability.


This is all about the control-freakery of the insecure, both corporately and individually. Fewer and fewer people in corporate managment today have any clue about what they're doing - and they know it. Exerting 'control' - ie preventing things - is the only means they have of at least kidding themselves that they haven't been found out.

Its all about power and control

The big managers will even lie under oath.
