Mind your PR pitches…

Kevin Dugan has been in touch to tell me about a new PR blog he’s created with Richard Laermer. It’s called the Bad Pitch Blog.

In their own words:

“We’re tired of the public relations industry taking the blame for a minority of its members that pollute communication channels with bad pitches, poorly written news releases and useless phone calls asking “did you get the release?”

So we’re outing the guilty parties in full view of the highly-networked blogosphere. It’s our hope that the Bad Pitch blog will entertain the true victims of this practice, the PR industry, and it will help the guilty parties improve. Hopefully the blog will someday become obsolete.”
