AIG P. R. department is prowling the web for rapid response to negativity.

In an effort to give fair and equal treatment, I've decided to post a comment that I received on my previous posting about AIG.


AIG Blog Relations

Earlier today, AIG announced an important policy change - one that we wanted to be sure you knew about.

A short time ago, our Chairman and CEO Ed Liddy said that he has ordered the immediate cancellation of all outside meetings, conferences, and recognition events across AIG, except those that are required by law or that are deemed absolutely critical to sustain our ongoing business needs.

Given AIG's commitment to our customers, business partners, regulators, and American taxpayers, coupled with the new and very different challenges our company now faces, we take these responsibilities extremely seriously. Their trust is critical to our success. We recognize the need to be sensitive about all company expenditures.

As we move forward, we will continue our focus our efforts to pay back the $85 billion loan from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as quickly as possible.

Well, it seems that the AIG PR department is on the prowl to respond to any potentially negative press about them after the snafu with the "Spa" event.

My little old blog popped up on someone's radar.
