AIG begins campaign to repair public image


NEW YORK -- American International Group began a public relations campaign Thursday to repair its reputation.

The insurance giant posted several videos on YouTube proclaiming that AIG is proud to be an American corporation.

AIG received the biggest government bailout -- totaling $182.5 billion -- of any company during the 2008 financial crisis. It became a symbol for greed and excessive risk-taking on Wall Street.
