I love it:

Cozying up to murderers and tyrants? That's just part of the job.

Deflecting attention away from crimes and misconduct by your client? All inf a day's work.

Burying truthful reporting and floating false narratives to distort reality and serve your clients' interests? That's what they pay us for.

Hinting that black people should be mad at white people? OMG! THAT'S NOT AT ALL WHAT OUR BUSINESS IS ABOUT! SHAME! SHAME!

An impressive piece of work.  I can't imagine how Pepsi and Boeing haven't managed to work this into thier ads.
