What is up with the PR industry? If we're not declaring the press release dead, (Spoiler alert - it isn't) we're deciding we don't really know anything about journalists (we do).

Oh and let's not forget the nameless agency who issued a press release launching a new creative team saying they wouldn't do one off stunts...

I can't remember the last day I didn't see someone from our industry engaging in a bout of self-flagellation and for the life of me I can't figure our where this contempt we have has come from. I can only imagine the reactions of young graduates considering PR as a career to articles like this - I'd imagine it wouldn't be kind. 

No other communications discipline has this complete lack of self confidence. They celebrate their successes publicly and deal with their failings in private. There's nothing wrong with transparency, in fact it's to be applauded. But please, can we start talking about the good as well.
