Fox PR Team Plays Auto-Reply Tag with The Washington Post

#NotImpressedHere’s how much we care

This story isn’t particularly revealing, but it is amusing, so here goes

WaPo writer Erik Wemple tried to email Irena Briganti, SVP of media relations at Fox News, with an interview request.

Wemple immediately received an auto-reply instructing him to contact Dana Klinghoffer or Carly Shanahan, two other top names on the Fox PR team. He proceeded to email Klinghoffer, whose auto-reply told him to email Shanahan. Her auto-reply then recommended emailing….wait for it…Klinghoffer.

Oh haha, we get it: you don’t want anyone associated with your operation to talk to Erik Wemple.

All we’re saying is that there are other, more traditional ways to deny media requests. And Fox is all about maintaining traditions, right?
