Spamming Your Next Boss

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Job hunting? Your resume may be getting blocked by a "spam filter" on the hiring person's computer system. Those magic words that sell your abilities and desirability for the recipient's job likely are the same ones used by companies trying to sell Viagra or low-interest-rate home loans. But It's NOT Porn!

Air America: At the Left End of Your Radio Dial

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Air America isn't only the CIA's airline. It also is a new nine-station radio network built as a counterweight to the dreaded conservative talk radio. Leftward-tilting comedian Al Franken has defined himself by what he is not: a media heavyweight like Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. No Rush

It's Clear: Stern Given the Boot

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


It's a right-wing conspiracy! That's what radio host Howard Stern said when the country's largest radio chain dropped his show like a hot potato. Seems the feds decided to fine Clear Channel Communications $495,000 after Stern's sexually explicit show triggered the FCC's antenna. They must have thought it was the current version of George Carlin's seven dirty words. Shocked Jock

Blair Book Bubble 'bout to Burst

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Notorious lying, plagiarizing journalist Jayson Blair, formerly of The New York Times, is about to drop off the bookseller's radar screen. His story, a scandal at this country's most powerful newspaper, inched as high as No. 32 on The New York Times nonfiction Best Seller's list, but, by 11 Apr 04, it will fall from the list, doubtless never to return. Laughing Liberals

Not for The Naked Chef

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Southern Living has pulled its April issue from store shelves and notified subscribers, because of food with a serious case of indigestion. The magazine's recipe for "Icebox Dinner Rolls" may be delicious, but it also has a tendency to explode. And you thought carbohydarates were bad ... Bin Laden's Cookbook?

Ink by the Barrel

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


This morning, Don Imus ("Imus in the Morning") once again proved the old adage, "Never get into an argument with someone who buys ink by the barrel." Or who controls the microphone and has a large, loyal, nationwide broadcast audience. Ten years after grocer Stu Leonard went to prison for tax evasion, Leonard Junior ticked off Imus, who dredged up daddy's jail time for one of his classic satires. You don't want to be the butt of those, we assure you. Power Of The Press

The Curse of Publicity

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Chicago's Harry Caray's Restaurant managed an incredible publicity coup from buying and blowing up a baseball. Oh, it's a bit more complicated than that, but the stunt raised a million dollars, was carried worldwide, and may even have ended Sam Sianis' six-decade curse. Explosive Evidence

Bustin' the Curves

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


Kansas City radio station KYYS has been busted for a billboard anouncing their anniversary. Why the fuss? Their billboard graphic merely showed the swimsuit- and bikini-clad bosoms of 15 lasses, helping the radio station celebrate "30 big ones!" Nothing on the billboard was flashing ...

Thorny Relationship Ends for Rosie

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


A lot of pots and pans and accusations were hurled, but Rosie O'Donnell's split from her namesake magazine eventually took on the aura of a no-fault divorce. Not a happy parting, but no alimony, either. The judge called it a fight over "bragging rights." We call it a mating of elephants. Un-Damaged

Media Rottweilers ... or Lap Dogs?

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


On a recent Hannity & Colmes show on FOX News, where the debate is claimed to be fair and balanced, guest Geraldo Rivera said, "Reporters don't report buildings that don't burn." The controversial reporter said the success stories of post-Saddam Iraq aren't being told ... only coverage on burning buildings and body counts. Which leads CornerBarPR.com® to question, If the media are the watchdogs of the government, who's the watchdog of the media? Are the media acting like rottweilers, watchdogs, or lap dogs? Or maybe ratings whores? Watching Watchdogs

What Did Rumsfeld Know and When Did He Know He Knew It?

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


"There are known knowns, ...  there are known unknown ...?" Upstaging his fumble-mouthed boss, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's known knowns -- not known nouns -- has won this year's "Foot in Mouth" award for the most baffling statement by a public figure. The logic is indisputable, if you can follow it. He even outdid Arnold's reprise of the movie, "When a Man Loves a Woman." Sticks 'n Stones

How Many Barrels of Beer Did PR Sell?

By CornerBarPR.com® Staff


If you find money sexy, then the IABC/Delahaye Medialink 2003 Research and Measurement Conference may be just right for you. It may not sound like a money conference, but the New York gathering Nov. 20-21 is all about "Generat[ing] a Positive Return on Your [PR] Investment." Today's economic environment may have screwed up everything in business, but it presents a golden opportunity for communicators. What better place than Times Square to expose communicators to research-based findings of moving from a world of opportunistic PR to one where only the communicators who control the PR/ROI framework will be left standing?

The Bar is Back after Burst Blows Backbone

Richard B. Barger, ABC, APR

Our servers and data are fine, but there was no way for us to access the Internet until our Tech God set up a wireless link to a different facility on the other side of the problem.
