Journalists learn so much from the meetings we have with our sources (breakfasts, lunches, desk-side chats, and drinks). But the richness of that conversation often gets lost in the transfer from off-the-record to attribution. Much of that leakage is to be expected. Those in the industry do yearn to talk about more than they should; that's obvious. But I think there is an self-enforced taciturnity that does not help to reverse the stereotype that PR is about obfuscation or deception. What say you?
