I have just one question: WHY? Why, oh why must people calling themselves "publicists" behave in such a manner and penalize the rest of us who follow the rules and are actually competent at our jobs? This man and those like him ruin the fun for the rest of us. You, sir, are the reason reporters screen their phone calls, toss my packages in the trash and relegate my carefully crafted pitches to the spam folder.
Please, do us all a favor--get a clue (blogger-in-crime Jennifer A. Jones addresses the dos and don'ts of pitching here) or get a new job! Preferably one that doesn't require common sense or mastery of the English language.
