    Get over yourself. You’re dealing with entry-level flacks because you’re an entry-level publication.

    Aw….looks like the poor little editor has fallen for pranks in the past and got his itty bitty feelings hurt for being a sucker.

    Lighten up Francis.

    BTW….Entrepreneur is KNOWN as a black hole for legitimate flacks to pitch. Not even worth the time. I’m with Farrah. Get over yourself.

  3. “entry level” publication? I’d expect that sort of comment from someone who obviously thought sending a “fake” news release to an editor was oh so clever. Entrepreneur may be a “black hole” in that it’s difficult to get a response, but isn’t that the point? That lots of companies want to be on its site and in its pages.

    Maybe I have a “prank news release” blind spot, but I’ve never heard of this “tradition” before and I’ve been in the PR biz for 20+ years. Maybe it’s not even considered in the B2B space, where I work.

    Bottom line: i can’t imagine one of these fake releases actually being funny. and I’m confident that the two previous posters are NOT clever enough to write a humorous prank news release. And think about it: if all went well, the prankster would get a fake item published, embarrassing the reporter/editor that they’d want to work with in the future. Hmmmmm. Let me think. Would that strengthen or weaken your relationship going forward with the editor.
