About Inviting the Press

3 Feb

If you’re a politician (or working for one) and you’re holding a press event – you know, where you actually invite the press to cover it and ask questions – don’t be all that surprised if the press begins asking you questions about other things in the news while you’re on your way out.

Even if you wanted to avoid it. Even if it’s not what you wanted to have happen. Roll with it with good humor. Don’t get all pissy at the press, or at the PR guy for the school.

The press is doing its job.

They don’t get all pissy at you for doing your job.
