PR Agencies – Spray and Pray

- - Blog

Just got a press release from an author trying to have FriendsEAT run a story that we support the Banning of Birthright Citizenship.

A couple points to the PR agency:

1. We are a large culinary website not the political arm of Fox News.
2. I (our editor, many of our employees) are children of immigrants.
3. The press release quotes about 15 Right Wing Bloggers, Fox news, the Examiner, 2 conservative Think Tanks, and Sarah Palin…so it’s fair an balanced of course.
4. There is a piece of illogical thought in the press release.. example: “The Marmara Manhattan, a high-rise suites hotel located in New York’s Upper East Side is offering a one-bedroom suite accommodation for $5,100, plus taxes, for a month, with airport transfer, baby cradle and a gift set for the mother, according to

Medical fees, at a cost of around $30,000, are arranged by the hotel separately.” Then it goes on to say… “..these criminals are abusing the welfare system of the United States”..

wait…these people just paid $35,100 for a hotel and to have a baby…

Does welfare have a different definition then the one I know?

Anyway. We aren’t publishing the press release.
