A Group of Doctors Tried to Get Dr. Oz Ousted from Columbia University

1 day ago

Saying that Dr. Oz “has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine, as well as baseless and relentless opposition to the genetic engineering of food crops,” a group of physicians sent a letter to Columbia University this week saying the school should promptly dismiss him. Dr. Mehmet Oz is famous thanks to his daytime talk show and his own magazine, and accomplished due to a career as a heart surgeon and his position as vice chair of the Department of Surgery at Columbia University?s College of Physicians and Surgeons. But he ran afoul of science and Congress when he went on his show and recommended some questionable weight-loss products. He admitted during those Congressional hearings that the products he recommended weren’t exactly medically endorsed. “Thus, Dr. Oz is guilty of either outrageous conflicts of interest or flawed judgements about what constitutes appropriate medical treatments, or both. Whatever the nature of his pathology, members of the pub...

The 2016 Election Cycle Heats Up

1 day ago

With the 2016 Presidential Election more than 500 days away, things are starting to heat up. Yes, really. With four announced candidates, the horse race coverage has begun and everything candidates say or do will be scrutinized. As digital and social media become more and more popular, campaigns have put a large focus on their online efforts. With a quicker pace, there's more room for mistakes and a larger audience at stake with digital content. Because of this, campaigns are forced to be hyper-cautious while trying to get a little creative. So far, the four announced candidates include Democrat Hillary Clinton, and three Republicans: Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. Republican Jeb Bush has a formal exploratory committee considering a bid. And former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee is running or still in the exploratory phase of the campaign, depending on who you ask. Here are three of the most interesting headlines so far: 1. The battle of the 404 pages Likely the most en...

Avoid the Imitation Game: Be Ready to Break the Rules

1 day ago

This is a guest post by Max Nelson, comms lead at Maryland-based marketing/PR agency SalientMG. It can be easy to fall into habits. Consumers expect to receive their news in certain ways, CEOs expect their PR departments to work in certain ways and the success of a particular announcement or campaign is measured in ways that ties back to these expectations. Draft a press release. Write an accompanying corporate blog post. Pitch the reporter with whom you have the best relationship. Offer an interview with the \"go-to\" executive. Tweet a link to the story. Look at hits/impressions/shares. There is essentially a checklist to follow in today?s PR world, and the result is work that, when you step back and think about it, is incredibly formulaic. There is nothing wrong with following this checklist (no one has ever gotten fired for recommending Business Wire), but as an industry, we have to acknowledge that our methods haven?t evolved much in the last decade — and we shouldn?t be afraid...

Pitch, Please: Journalists Sound Off on Media Relations

1 day ago

Bring back blogfights. I miss @arrington going off on someone for an ill-thought-through post or PR pitch. It all happens on Twitter now. ? Martin Bryant (@MartinSFP) April 13, 2015 Obvious statement of the day: PR plays a crucial but often unsung role in the work done by journalists around the world every day. DUH. Journos rarely sing the praises of their PR contacts in public, and most pros wouldn’t want such attention anyway because we all know that the key word in media relations is “relations” as in relationships. That said, journalists CAN offer tips on what to do and what not to do. In a new feature developed with some help from our friends at Muck Rack (check out the Shorty Awards this coming Monday!), we’ve begun to collect media figures’ best pitch responses in a weekly feature we call “Pitch, Please.” It’s true, as Martin Bryant of The Next Web notes in the tweet above, that much of the bitching process now occurs on Twitter. For example, Pete Schroeder of The Hill notes ...

Japanese Airline Unveils ?Star Wars Project? With Plans for R2D2 Jet

1 day ago

There’s no better way to get attention for your brand than to tie its latest initiative to the “Star Wars” series. R2D2 always proved a trustworthy co-pilot for Luke, and come this Fall, he’ll be ushering travelers across land and sea for All Nippon Airways. The Japanese airline is kicking off its five-year-long “Star Wars” project by painting a brand new Boeing 787s to resemble the lovable robot, and the company promises that the jet is only the first in a long line of “novel initiatives” to be associated with the franchise. The announcement comes just as “Star Wars” fans across the globe are catching their first glimpses of the teaser trailer for the upcoming film “Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens.” Considering the heaps of bad press the airline industry has received lately — and with the success of Air New Zealand’s recent partnerhip with “The Hobbit” that included a plane painted to look like Smaug — this well-timed promo project may just possess the force necessary to attract s...
