Keep your Pea Coat (#111) on, however--now there's "Stuff Journalists Like," a blog about, well, stuff that journalists like. (FYI, Drinking is #10).
From Press Releases (#30):
As much as press releases can save a journalist time and effort, they also can draw the ire of journalists. Sometimes a journalist receives a 10-page press release about a new line of soap from some local boutique. Or a press release that does not include any form of contact information. Journalists do not like these type of press releases and will complain about them to anyone in the newsroom who listens for the next week or two.So true, so true.
