Friday FAIL – PR Fail and PR Win

To pay homage to the twisted twins PR Fail and PR Wins set up by Jonathan Hopkins and Brendan Cooper (a new overseas FH colleague) respectively, I’m turning this week’s Friday Frivolity into Friday FAIL. Actually, it’s also just an excuse to highlight some of the hysterical things that brighten my day from the Fail Blog (Pictures and Videos of Failed moments).

So in honor of PR Fail and PR Win…

I actually have my own thoughts about PR Fail and PR Win and they boil down to:

  1. I’m tired of PR people getting bashed, but
  2. I understand why some of us deserve it

I know a lot of great PR people who are trying to turn that image around – and I hope I’m one of them – but it’s a big, dumb boat to turn.

Incidentally, here’s a REALLY provocative and interesting post from Sweeney, bashing Michael Arrington bashing PR folk – definitely worth a read. Also, for more information about PR Fail, visit Brendan’s PR Fail commentary and the subsequent conversation he had with Jonathan.
