PR bunny bites back
Dangerous when wet
Every UK PR bunny's favourite read, PR Week, (well, it does have lots of job ads), praises one Lisa Allen for standing up to rude and surly hacks. [Who they? - Ed]
Little Lisa was deeply upset by being given the cold shoulder by Daily Mail technology writer Paul Kendall and fired off an email snottogram:
"Thank you for taking the time to talk to me today... not," spat La Allen. "I suppose it makes you feel big and clever to talk to people that way. All I can think is that you are very short or bald to have such a big, misplaced ego. Don't worry, I will never bother to take up your precious time again - I won't (sic) want to lower myself to your level."
She explained that she had been "striking a blow for PR people who have had journalists being rude to them on the phone".
Good on yer, Lisa, is PR Weak's take, while here at The Reg we can only admire Lisa's spunk, but would strongly advise any clients wishing to see their products featured in a positive light in the Mail in future might want to look elsewhere for a PR bunny to help them.
Any bunnies wishing to experience rude and surly hacks at first hand are advised to phone Vulture Central.
You know the number. ®
