Bad pitch watch

January 28, 2008

Came across this post, “When Flaks Attack, We Bite Back,” by Judith Siers-Poisson from the Center for Media and Democracy. It’s awesome. Yet another ill-advised pitch from a PR rep.

Mind you, Judith edits the PR Watch Newsletter, “dedicated to investigative reporting on the public relations industry… serving citizens, journalists and researchers seeking to recognize and combat manipulative and misleading PR practices… specializing in blowing the lid off today’s multi-billion dollar propaganda-for-hire industry, naming names and revealing how public relations wizards concoct and spin the news.”

As I wrote in the comments, this is like President Woodrow Wilson sending the Taxpayers for Common Sense a “heads up” email that he was signing the estate tax into law in three days…

Yikes.
