PR Disaster Awards – nominations from The Age online

Business scribe Leon Gettler has chipped in a few other nominations for the 2006 Awards: his list includes, Ch9 supremo Eddie Maguire ‘boning’ female talent, ABC paying-for then shying-away from the controversial ‘Jonestown’ book, Telstra’s sodden Sol Trujillo and, among others, dishevelled Danny DeVito.  Ta, Leon, nice blog, too.

  1. Former Judge Marcus Einfeld has to be a contender. Suggesting that dead people were driving his car when a multitude of traffic and parking offenses occured is up there with obtaining a doctorate by mail order. His un-listened to PR flaks must have been relieved when he let them go!

  2. Jon; lots of evidence of how PR disasters occur when there’s a strategic PR vacuum (OJ’s doomed If I Did It book, for eg). And yes, Linda, speaking ill of the dead (even if suggesting they were having a post-mortem drive), is a real no-no. Pity, too, that this may be how the eminent Einfeld may be remembered in long term!
