No More Beers for America

"Charlotte Beers, the former advertising executive who has been in charge of the Bush administration's global campaign to enhance the image of the United States among Muslims, resigned today for what she said were health reasons," reports Steven Weisman. Under Beers' supervision, the U.S. State Department produced videos, pamphlets, booklets and other materials, but her efforts were largely seen as ineffective. Most of the comments on the O'Dwyer's PR web site celebrated her departure, saying "Good riddance!" and "About time! She was horrible and the U.S. has lost all post-9/11 support."
