St. Kitts and findredrainey.com Nevis (WINN): Tourism stakeholders including the buy cialis on line media and the cialis fast police were last week part of buy propecia online prescription a workshop on crisis communication, conducted by PR firm Adams International that represents St. Kitts in North America. Candace Kimmel, President of Adams International said the purpose of the workshop is to review the basic tenets of crisis communication and the remind people why we have crisis communication.  “That is to protect St. Kitts, to protect the brand, to protect our reputation in the world,” Ms. Kimmel said. “We all as individuals care so much about our country but sometimes we seem to be at loggerheads with each other, maybe trip over our own feet on how best to do real pharmacy discount that while at the viagra legal same time do our jobs,” she added.

If Ms. Kimmel is naive enough to think that the media are going to report "just the facts" in the heat of a crisis, I'd suggest she doesn't know much about how news is gathered or reported, or about crisis communication. In today's world, "news" consists of rumor, speculation, opinion, supposition, presumption and rosa.org an occasional fact -- all presented by anybody with Internet access and an axe to grind. You might as well get used to best price levitra it -- and a good PR firm would be telling you how to deal with it. If you think the media are going to wait hours while you gather your thoughts and develop a spiffy statement, think again. They are probably going to start "reporting" on your crisis before some of what is levitra you know that it is happening. And the first to report plants seeds for the rest of the coverage and for the formation of public opinion, and it is extremely difficult to change those once they are floating out there on the Internet.
