Subject: Fw: CALLING ALL PR's important journalist info...
Some of you may be aware of this blog which A COMMA HERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE basically AND HERE takes the piss out of us, naming and shaming countless PRs – AND MAYBE HERE INSTEAD OF THE DASH dissecting their press releases, offending their sensibilities and the very nature of the magnificent world of PR! Not any more….WELL, THAT'S CLEARLY NOT TRUE (BUT THEN YOU ARE IN PR). there’s WHY NO CAPITAL T? a backlash, a revolution in full swing. PR backlash ‘GET OVER IT!’ (TM – BC) BABS IS BEHIND THIS? is a forum solely for music PRs across the country who have tirelessly dealt with tantrums, knock backs and general degradation from many a music journalist. This is our chance to voice our concerns, completely anonymously and in a tasteful manner. Be it a hilarious anecdote of one journalist invoicing a PR for their ‘Wasted Time’, a horrendous hotel tab comprised of porn, room service and more porn or tales of pure stupidity and lack of musical knowledge from some of the UK’s most trusted scribes…we SURELY, "We" want to hear it!
How low will a journalist go?
To get us started we want to hear your nominations for the most horrendous journalist behaviour of all time. While we all pluck up our courage, we want your tales of wicked whispers and journalist folklore. You don’t have to name and shame and we promise to respect anonymity. As we all know journalists seriously lack a sense of humour THIS BIT IS TRUE and we will not give them the opportunity to trace contributors. We all know a lot of the insider stories already and it would be good to share them with a wider forum.
