The more things change, the more media relations seem to stay the same. Not surprisingly, because reporters and editors are people who don't like to be bothered unnecessarily. Martin Keller, host of the Public and Media Relations blog, digests the insights from a media relations conference call held by Help a Reporter Out and finds them familiar but worth reinforcing. His most surprising insight came when the media panel "turned thumbs down on pitches made through social media like Facebook and Twitter, Fax and the U.S. mail...Use their email first....," he advises.

Keller's post is entitled, "14 PR Tips from Known Journalists." Brush up on some timeless cautions.
