Uber Doing Damage Control After Bout Of Bad Press
While Uber’s managed to jump around controversial incidents in the past, two reports by Buzzfeed have drug the ridesharing company into the spotlight.By Jake Godin | November 19, 2014
This is just not a good week for Uber. The ridesharing company is in full gear scrambling to repair its image.
It started with a Monday Buzzfeed report where Uber’s VP of business, Emil Michael, suggested the company could invest money to essentially dig up dirt on journalists critical of Uber and using that dirt against them.
Michael apologized profusely through Twitter and written statements, chalking the remarks up to him venting, but it was too late. The damage was done.
