US Weekender | September 26th 2015
Welcome to PRWeek's Weekender newsletter, which catches you up on everything you missed during the week, gives you a few long reads for the weekend, and highlights the biggest trends in the communications industry over the past seven days. Enjoy your weekend!

Two themes dramatically different in tone dominated the communications news cycle this past week. This was a week of corporate controversy, crisis communication, and resignations. German auto mainstay Volkswagen entered damage-control mode after regulatory groups discovered it had purposely installed software to reduce diesel emissions from certain cars during inspections. VW’s CEO, Martin Winterkorn, quickly resigned (a move PR pros advised).

Another high-profile resignation was Turing Pharmaceutical’s recently appointed CCO Craig Rothenberg. Rothenberg announced he would leave the position after Turing raised the price of a drug used by HIV/AIDS victims by 5,000%. Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba also engaged in some damage control: its SVP of international affairs Jim Wilkinson fired off a 2,000-word letter to investment magazine Barron's after it predicted Alibaba shares could drop 50% in value.

A decidedly more positive tone surrounded coverage of Pope Francis’ tour of the United States, which started on Thursday. Brands were quick to jump on the pope-coverage bandwagon, and the pontiff’s address to congress received near-unanimous praise from communication professionals.

Communications professionals gave a near unanimous thumbs up to Pope Francis' historic address to a joint session of Congress on Thursday. The pontiff addressed issues such as climate change and immigration and touched on hot-button topics such as abortion.
Divine inspiration: Pope Francis' US visit - and PR message - can help rebuild Catholic Church, say comms pros Divine inspiration: Pope Francis' US visit - and PR message - can help rebuild Catholic Church, say comms pros
As more and more people in the US leave the Catholic Church, an on-target message from the progressive Pope about poverty and discrimination could help reverse the slide when he visits the country in September.
