Murphy's Law

Tom Murphy

You see PR people can be useful too..

Mark Glaser at the Online Journalism Review has an interesting article looking at how PR people can be a real asset to journalists.  It’s a nice change from the usual “Flacks are rubbish” comments.

“I have a dirty little secret. I like PR people. OK, I don’t like all of them, but I must admit that a lot of publicists have helped me in my quest to speak to the right person, set up an interview, give me background info. This might sound strange to fellow journalists (or may secretly ring true), but a few of my best story ideas came from flacks.”
