Diary: Begg is top media act in transport

Hearty congrats to Commission for Integrated Transport chair David Begg, just named in a MORI survey as transport journalists' favourite spokesman.

Twenty-seven per cent of journalists interviewed by the polling firm identified Begg as the transport sector's single most impressive media act.

The other findings of the poll - such as the statistic that 59 per cent of hacks value press officers who have an open and honest relationship with the media (PRWeek is amazed that press officers could have anything other than open and honest relationships with the media) - were rather uninspiring.

Begg says telling it straight is the secret of his success: 'There is an awful lot of cynicism around what some people call the spin culture and others call PR.'
