It was announced this week that NBC has tapped Arnold Schwarzenegger to replace Donald Trump as host of the Celebrity Apprentice.

Trump, as many folks know, was let go by NBC after some pretty disgusting comments about Hispanic immigrants.

Schwarzenegger, as many folks know, was let go by NBC journalist Maria Shriver after a pretty creepy tabloid rumor-turned-out-to-be-true regarding Arnie and his Hispanic housekeeper.

Umm…where to begin?

When we conduct our “issues management” and “crisis management” trainings, we talk about how – in most cases – an issue or crisis is not a “PR problem” at all, as so many people like to term it. It is – in fact – an institutional issue that has been caused by a series of bad decisions, bad information and careless disregard for consequences.

Methinks @NBC will have another “PR prob” not of the PR team’s fault thanks to Arnie and the Powers That Be. #Apprentice
