Jamie Dupree Gets the White House Heisman!

I heard WSB Atlanta’s Jamie Dupree, a bona fide member of the media, talking about getting the Heisman from the White House and found an account of it on his blog:

I emailed Deputy White House Press Secretary Reid Cherlin, who was quoted extensively in a story in Saturday’s New York Times, and asked if I could get the information emailed to me.

“Where are you seeing that I distributed “talking points”?” Cherlin replied somewhat huffily to me by email.

He then went on to say that “having never worked with you or heard from you before, I don’t think it’s unreasonable that I didn’t send anything to you.”

Hmmm.

I guess I hit a nerve by having the nerve to ask for information from the White House Press Office.

At least he didn’t give me a Serena Williams reply.

On The SEC Giving Fans The Heisman

Not the Security and Exchange Commission–I’ll straighten them out next week. I’m talking about the Southeastern Conference.

Now, these are just the simple-minded observations from someone with absolutely no formal training in marketing:

  • If someone is excited about your product and wants to talk about it, you should be happy.
  • If someone is excited about your product and wants to talk about it, you should encourage them.
  • No matter who you are, you have bigger PR problems than someone who is excited about your product telling the world about it.

Michael Silence has been diligent in covering their decision to threaten bloggers, Tweeple, people with phones, and YouTubers, and you can get a ton of information on this from him and others.
