hacks’s flacks take a whack

  • When Fox News Is the Story: “Once the public relations apparatus at Fox News is engaged, there will be the calls to my editors, keening (and sometimes threatening) e-mail messages, and my requests for interviews will quickly turn into depositions about my intent or who else I am talking to. And if all that stuff doesn’t slow me down and I actually end up writing something, there might be a large hangover: Phone calls full of rebuke for a dependent clause in the third to the last paragraph, a ritual spanking in the blogs with anonymous quotes that sound very familiar, and — if I really hit the jackpot — the specter of my ungainly headshot appearing on one of Fox News’s shows along with some stern copy about what an idiot I am.”
  • In other opinions about the Fox-New York Times controversy:

    • PRWeek blogs
    • “Well done, Mr. Carr, well done. Expect a horse’s head in your bed,” says FishbowlNY co-editor Noah Davis.
    • Broadcasting & Cable’s Mike Malone says Carr did “a helluva job” with the column.
    • Huffington Post media editor Rachel Sklar says Fox’s PR strategy scares off positive mentions.
    • Radar’s Choire Sicha comments that dealing with CNN can be “difficult and uptight,” but working with Fox “can actually be frightening.”
