You can understand interviewers' frustrations given politicians' inability to answer a question ('Ofcom receives complaints after row between Adam Boulton and Alastair Campbell', prweek.com/uk, 14 May). It is great to actually see a proper argument and passion coming to the surface.
It makes it far more human and makes for entertaining 'real television', rather than another evening of 'reality television'.
- Boulton loses out in war of words with Campbell
If there was one clear loser, it was Boulton. He showed he lacks the gravitas of Dimbleby and even Stewart, and looked out of his depth. The Campbell interview just emphasised that.
- Wolfstar rant will have earned it few friends ...
What was so surprising about Wolfstar's post ('Agency MD slams industry's social media approach after online agency spat', prweek.com/uk, 14 May) was that, in general, there is a real community spirit of collaboration and support among those of us working in social media. So, for one to attack another was a shock. It was like the praying mantis that bites the head off its mate.
- PR agencies are failing to get the basics right
Even though everybody claims to be 'doing social media' these days, most PR agencies are struggling to get their heads around even basic stuff such as blogger outreach. Ultimately, I do not believe anybody outside of the social media echo-chamber is really going to care much about this kind of point-scoring.
