The public relations discussion question we asked this week to our BraudCast viewers and social media followers: What should you do if a reporter takes you out of context? We asked public relations professionals and media relations experts to weigh in with their best practices so their colleagues could benefit. Our experts brought up some interesting points such as the type of relationship the interviewee has with the journalist, whether or not any key stakeholders would be affected by the information taken out of context, and what would be the appropriate way to approach a reporter about the situation if the interviewee did decide to do so? Our followers contributed valid points such as whether such a situation warrants a phone call, an email, a blog, or a new news release clearing the air. Now it’s your turn. What do you have to add to the conversation? Do you agree or disagree with these comments?
