Poll: Do You Go Off The Record With Journalists?

One thing we’ve noticed at PRNewser over time is that some PR pros are really good at going “off the record” or dropping tips to reporters and some are, well, bad at it, or don’t do it at all.

Also, many PR pros don’t understand the difference between “on background” or “non-attributable” and “off the record.” More on that here.

One agency we spoke with recently said they advise clients to never go off the record with the media, as it is just too risky. The agency said, however, that they will sometimes go off the record on behalf of their clients.

This leads us to our latest PRNewser poll:
