Be Careful What You Offer a Reporter: Is it, Indeed, Worthy?
 
At a slack time for worthy PR initiatives — that's to say, interesting items for passing along on Flack Me — we offer some counsel from John Crudele of The New York Post. He's got a list of stories that "public relations folks...begged me to write, but I didn't get around to it." No wonder.

Crudele's list is a reminder that PR isn't, or shouldn't be, a lark, but a carefully focused means of promoting worthwhile information. What's worthy? Something a reporter, and presumably his or her readers, will take to heart. Spend time as the year turns understanding what that indeed might be.
