…we were told that we must use the official statement and that we must follow corporate policy to defer all press requests to corporate communications.
We were in an impossible situation as journalists. I could have quit right then. Maybe I should have. I decided that the best thing for my team was to get through the day as best we could and to fight the fight from the other side.
Going forward, I will do everything within my power to prevent this situation from happening again.
Anyone else want to join me in calling bullshit on her statement? She didn’t do “everything within my power” to stop it this time. What makes us believe that she will next time?
