Bad Pitch Outrage

We sometimes find ourselves posting about topics that seem more like common freakin’ sense than the finer points of media relations.

A standout has been when we’ve talked about and even poked fun at pitches trying to tie their story to current events – no matter how macabre it might seem.

So we’ll merely link to this news release so you can see how horribly tasteless, opportunistic and insensitive people can be in this world. And we’ll point you to other folks that have ably weighed in on the idiocy this bad pitch.

My hope is that, based on the contact info, this was conceived and implemented without any public relations counsel.
