Some recommended reading, from the news and blogs:
- John Wagner has started an interesting conversation about public relations in “A living case study on multi-cultural communications.” The post covers the situation surrounding the proposed name change for the Houston soccer team.
- Communication Overtones gives us “CRISISCOMM 101: Mr. Cheney; If you shoot someone, it isn’t an exclusive.” There’s a list of five things they believe should have been done: 1) Enact Plan; 2) Get the Facts; 3) Release Statement; 4) Open Media Center; and, 5) Get Out Front.
- Special thanks to Internet Curios for point me to these: “They are watching. So What?” and “ACLU testimony on Surveillance System before DC City Council” about cameras, surveillance and privacy.
- D’Artagnan Bebel, vice president and general manager of Fox 26 KRIV-TV and UPN 20 KTXH-TV in Houston, was named chairman of the board for the Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan Houston Inc. board of directors.
