About those Apostrophe's

By The Words Guy


It really isn't fair to pick on sportswriters' misuse of the King's English, but it's so easy, like throwing an M-80 into a barrel of fish.  What has become of the honorable profession of copyediting?  Couple Examples'

Get Your Assets in Gear

By Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR


Screwed-up headlines are fun to catch, not so much fun if you're the one who wrote them. Assets. Hand jobs. Disks. Red Tape.

Go ahead, submit your favorites. Dead Heads

Your Vote Counts ... Or Does It?

Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR

By Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR


Every election, we're admonished to be sure to vote, because an election can hinge on a single vote.  We guess that's true, but more often, it isn't.  And it certainly isn't as much fun as finding out how many dead people are voting. Ghost Writing

Journalists on CNN Broadcast 'Lean In' to Attack Trump

Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR

By Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR


Journalists Nia-Malika Henderson and Molly Ball must have read the same memo before attacking Donald Trump on CNN's "Inside Politics with John King."  Otherwise, why would these professional communicators have resorted to identical terminology -- three times? Impartial Journalists?

Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR

By Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR


We've been found!

And for all those suppliers who have been trying to sell us search services or site optimization or marketing consulting, that's a bad thing. As it is for those who want to sell us promotional products or sales tools (or, certainly, those folks who believe our personalities need a makeover!). Because we're in the midst of a major site overhaul, and certainly don't want to promote the current version of CornerBarPR.com® until more of our improvements are in place.  Lousy Timing

As The Star continues pimping for expensive new facilities and infrastructure (anyone hear the whispers of local architects and contractors?) at Kansas City's airport, they've come up with an idea that would really help pay for the $1.2 billion cost -- in only 240 years!

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


The Kansas City Star believes its editorial cartoons should provoke thought -- as long as they agree with the thought. Okay, many responses to one of their cartoons were angry, vile, and even threatening, but it wouldn't have required a high I.Q. to have anticipated the strong, negative reaction. What are editors for, anyway? Robust Debate?

Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR

By Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR


There's no way to pry D's loose from supporting President Obama, and R's aren't about to abandon Mitt Romney. But there still are some undecided voters out there -- really, there are! Here's a virtually foolproof way for them to make an Election Day decision that comfortably convinces these undecideds that they're making the right choice. It's About YOU!

Report the News, Dammit!

Here's a novel idea: Perhaps reporters should try to actually report the news, rather than dictating it.  Arrogant Media

Samsung Makes Geometric Faux Pas

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Apple wins a $1.05 billion mobile phone patent infringement ruling against Samsung. There may be real issues here, but lawyers have been involved, so some of the claims simply are silly.  Innovation Litigation
