Shoot the Messenger: PR’s “Little Jennifers” Problem?

(William J. Holstein does not like PR’s “little Jennifers”)

Prolific business writer and former Editor-in-Chief of Chief Executive and Directorship magazines William J. Holstein has expanded and edited his original rant against “Jasons and Jennifers” in public relations to include just “26 and 27-year-old ‘Little Jennifers,’” according to his retread in a recent issue of the Bulldog Reporter.

We thought this warranted a “Shoot the Messenger” post to see if PRNewser readers agree this piece required ageism and sexism to make a point. He published it to promote his book “Manage the Media”.

You can find the link, and full text to his original Chief Exec column on The Flack.

Is your name Jennifer? We’d love to hear what you think. Email us.

You can also send well-wishes to Holstein directly via his Yahoo! email.

Yours Truly,
Jason
