Columnist Mike Hendricks managed to insult the company with the job opening -- not to mention the entire PR industry -- in an email exchange regarding the job. Unhappy with being insulted, the PR folks forwarded the email exchange to a PR blog, Bad Pitch Blog, which printed the email exchange and tossed in some more digs and ridicule for good measure.
Read the Bad Pitch Blog post here.
In comments, Hendricks says he will take action against his contact at the PR firm.
By the way, if the moderator thinks he can protect his source by deleting this message, he is mistaken. I plan on informing her boss first thing Monday morning.
Hendricks may be pompous, and he has made his share of enemies, but his treatment at Bad Pitch Blog seems abusive to me.
