Politicians seem jinxed with the ability to have their words minced, their intentions perverted and have aired in the news an altered version of what they really did – making them look like they always put their feet in their mouth.
Mitt Romney seems unusually gifted in attracting that media jinx. The number of articles that have him and his feet in his mouth is astronomical.
And then there’s Obama: Obama’s incredible small business gaffe just won’t go away. As a result, three weeks after the president’s ill-advised comments during a July 13 campaign speech in Roanoke, Va., much of America is still talking about his unseemly words. To wit: “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that—somebody else made that happen.”
Question: So which of these is a PR In ? And which is a PR Out? Which do you believe is real or media-orchestrated?
