Why are PR firms ordering bloggers around?
John Gorenfeld recounts some particularly harrassing, and utterly stupid attempts by a PR firm, "Special Ops Media" to bully him into reviewing some shite book. (yeah, it's shite, 'cos your PR muppets have balsed it up...)
The deadline harrassment is hilarious, and it's a fun post. On a personal note though, although i don't get pitched so much by PR firms, i have had some beautifully inept attempts to get me to write about stuff here - the latest one i actually fell for, but when the idiot who got me to blog it started bumping the thread and pretending he was "just a customer" i'd had enough...
Really, what is it that makes some people assume that everyone else in the world is an idiot and can't see through their shit?
