Another Blogger Reacts To PR Nonsense

Following Chris Anderson’s outburst against PR people, here’s another outing of poor PR work – Gawker reacts to a publicist by publishing their email and deliberately omitting their client’s name:

“I noticed that last year Gawker covered the CLMP Spelling Bee and that a Gawker photographer was in attendance last night. I was wondering if anyone from your team was covering? It was apparent that sponsor, [Redacted] Vodka, definitely added an extra element to the evening for the contestants and guests! It would be great if you could mention that contestants sipped on [Redacted] Vodka Martinis!”

What? “[Redacted] Vodka, definitely added an extra element to the evening for the contestants and guests!” My god, are PR people really hired to write that crap?
