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 buy levitra with no prescription grind. You might as well get used to 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 you know that it is happening. And the first to report plants seeds for the rest of the coverage and for the formation of www.cityofalbany.net public opinion, and it is extremely difficult to change those once they are floating out there on the Internet.
