Mitt’s Media Mistake Should Be Lesson for All

I was in a meeting this week preparing for some media training seminars we’ll be conducting for a large corporation next week when the subject of not letting your guard down around media came up.  One of the executives in our meeting correctly suggested you should always watch what you say when a reporter is in the room. To which I added, “In today’s high-tech world, there is ALWAYS a reporter in the room.” Minutes later came Exhibit A-Mitt Romney’s secretly taped presentation in which he said 47% of Americans will vote for President Obama because they are “dependent upon ...

The Price is Wrong…Way Wrong

The 3 Basic PR Rules Broken by The Price is Right By Kendall Tenney   September 10, 2012- First, let me say I am a huge fan of The Price is Right. I’ve watched it since I was a kid and have always wanted to host the show.  In fact, I ended up on a short list of about 117 other people who hoped to take over as host when the legendary Bob Barker decided to retire.  (I’d like to think I made the top 100)   Recently, The Price is Right celebrated its 40th anniversary with a special show ...

Nevada hasn’t come a long way when it comes to smoking

This article is being reposted from: http://www.lvrj.com/news/nevada-hasn-t-come-a-long-way-when-it-comes-to-smoking-152960415.html John L. Smith Nevada hasn’t come a long way when it comes to smoking Posted: May 23, 2012 | 2:08 a.m. It seems like a no-brainer. Almost anywhere else in the country, it would be. But this is Nevada, where the subculture of cigarette smoking has long held sway over public health concerns and just plain common sense. Around these parts, the idea of clean-image towns such as Mesquite and Boulder City making the transition into smoke-free communities generates jeers instead of cheers. The fact secondhand smoke is a public health crisis is ...

The Media Train – Anticipating Questions

I watched in disbelief as the congressional candidate gave a long-winded, pointless answer to the political pundit’s question.  While her response lasted less than a minute, it felt like it took up the entire half hour program that was airing on local TV. I felt like I was witnessing a pivotal moment in this candidate’s campaign, and not in a positive way. What amazed me so much about the exchange was not how bad the would-be congresswoman’s answer was, but how poorly prepared she appeared to be for the question.   “Why did you decide to run for congress?” was ...
