Discussion Question: Should you get in a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel?
This Monday we are asking you, our social media followers and BraudCast viewers, “Is it true that you should never get in a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel?”
This old saying has been used for years, but even as new forms of media and social media change our communications and our public relations efforts, it still continues to be used. Are you willing to go to battle with reporters and journalists who may have said something negative or incorrect about your organization, your brand, or your company? Is it a battle that is worthwhile or does the journalist always get the last word? From a public relations standpoint, how can you engage in this touchy conversation without damaging your reputation? Has the widespread use of social media changed the meaning of this expression?
These are all things to consider in your comments this week. We want to hear your thoughts and your experience on this media relations topic. Please share your opinion with us and it may be shared this Friday in a follow-up video.
