Screaming Media. Many journalists would rather endure root canals or extended lunches with Kathie Lee Gifford than have to call internal PR departments of huge
corporations. (Case in point, this reporter tried to get a publicist with a well-known computer manufacturer and kept getting bumped to customer service, which then dangled me on
hold for several minutes. I have to admit I did enjoy the orchestral version of Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light").
