Laurel Touby Holds Fake Presser

Taking a page from the FEMA playbook, mediabistro.com Founder Laurel Touby not only held a fake press conference but populated it with fake reporters from CNN and other outlets to promote her upcoming conference.

Join us on May 20-21 for the first annual mediabistro Circus, a event designed to discuss video, mobile and social media in an entertaining way with the top thinkers and pundits.

Edelman’s Micropersuader Steve Rubel will be speaking, as will flack-outer and Longtailer Chris Anderson from WIRED.

Joe and I will be two of the Carnies working the event. Drop us a note to prnewser at mediabistro if you’re planning on coming.
