The swelling of the federal government’s communications bureaucracy to more than 3,000 workers reflects a “public relations state” designed to keep pace with the news cycle and politicize government messaging, experts say. “Spending more on communication isn’t problematic in itself,” Josh Greenberg, director of Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication, wrote in an email. “It becomes problematic to the extent that it increases the likelihood of blurring the lines between public information and party propaganda.”
