"In an industry where success can, at times, feel like it’s governed more by relationships and politics than performance, the ability to successfully earn coverage is the one indisputable way that we can show our worth."
My favorite part of working in public relations is (and probably always will be) pitching and landing a story for a client and seeing it run in print. In an industry where success can, at times, feel like it’s governed more by relationships and politics than performance, the ability to successfully earn coverage is the …

"Everywhere you look these days, America is in a rush to embrace the stupid. "
The United States is being overrun by a wave of anti-science, anti-intellectual thinking. Has the most important, powerful nation on Earth lost its mind?

"There’s a good case to be made that brands, in the desperate need to be accepted, are apologizing way too much — and to their own detriment."
US Airways' apology for its porno tweet was not out of character: It's one of the most apologetic airlines on Twitter. Does it have a sorry' problem?

"It’s not going to be fucking boring. I don’t mean to sound arrogant when I say that, but that’s the goal in this."

"If you took half of the NCAA’s average annual tournament broadcast revenue, divided it equally among those 351 teams, then divided it again to give an equal cut to 15 players per squad, you’d get around $73,000 per head."

That's a lot of cash.
It’s time for March Madness, that magical three-week stretch when all of college sports’ revenue streams converge. In 2010, the NCAA signed a 14-year, $10.8 billion deal with CBS and Turner to broadcast the tournament. The NCAA also earns money from ticket sales and concessions, while its TV partners give...

"He taught us that we're still a country that isn't ready for lower-class Americans from neighborhoods like Compton to succeed. We're still a country that can't decipher a person's character. But most of all, he taught us that no matter what you overcome in your life, we're still a country that can't accept someone if they're a little louder, a little prouder, or a little different from the people we surround ourselves with."

"Barry didn’t work in video games because designers couldn’t program someone who was a cheat code in real life."
When people remember Barry Sanders, the first thing that comes to mind is the retirement. It’s like talking about a rock star who overdosed. As the years pass, it becomes impossible to separate the...

"The art of busyness is to convey genuine alarm at the pace of your life and a helpless resignation, as if someone else is setting the clock, and yet simultaneously make it clear that you are completely on top of your game. These are not exactly humble brags. They are more like fretful brags, and they are increasingly becoming the idiom of our age."
Are you too busy? You should be, and you should let people know in a proud but exasperated tone. Like this, from an old colleague I recently asked for advice: “I would like to help but I can not. I am desperately trying to finish a screenplay and a talk...

It is profoundly liberating when you realize how pointless it is to get upset about the things you can’t control. Stressing about the situations outside your sphere of influence will do nothing but drive you batty. Instead, you can recapture this brainpower and put it to far better use.

"But we -- the media, and fans in general -- don't know what we want. We rip athletes for giving us boring quotes. But if they say what they actually feel, we rip them for spouting off or showing a lack of class."
Richard Sherman acted like a crazy person Sunday. But after what he went through, it wasn't so crazy at all.
