Media relations is a delicate cat-and-mouse game full of silver-tongued gurus with their fingers on the pulse of the news cycle. It's not something to be left to-for example-bumbling fools. Unless, of course, you hire a firm called MEGA Marketing & Media, which sent out the following actual pitch we just received from an actual reporter at a major news outlet. The persuasive hook, designed to lure the journalist in: "I figured with such a political week, such the the democratic convention just ended, and the republican starting this week." Uh, what?
Hey [Reporter] How are you? I was hoping to see if these items may fit the bill for something with [news outlet]. I figured with such a political week, such the the democratic convention just ended, and the republican starting this week. An item such as these may be more celeb driven, but hopefully used. Please let me know! There is a great picture with Christina Milian holding up the voting pin, and Stephanie Pratt with the Clipboard registering to vote at the Declare Yourself Booth! Photos: [These will never be run, at this rate] Stephanie Pratt Registered to vote at the Declare Yourself Booth. Noting that she is a Libertarian and is excited to vote for the 1st time! - Christina Milian Noting while sitting on the DECLARE YOURSELF Convertible Vintage Cougar that she is BIG OBAMA supporter and very excited that Joe Biden is his running mate.[Pic via Ze Frank]
