Pat Philbin, the former head of external affairs for FEMA, and the federal official who took the fall for the October 2007 supposed “fake news conference” has spoken out publicly about this event and his learnings from it. He will be speaking on this topic at the PRSA conference in Detroit in October and has written about it in PRSA’s new ComPRehension blog. His comments, as always, are insightful and interesting–as is the exchange on the blog. Full disclosure–Pat is Senior VP for PIER, the company I serve as CEO.
