Getting positive press coverage

Posted by davidburbage on June 22, 2011

Got to reflect on the potential similarities between what happens in Aylesbury and Maidenhead!

I always tell people who complain to me that the press never headline on the good stuff, that it is – in general – negative stories that sell newspapers, whereas positive stories do not.

“Council Call Centre answers record levels of calls within 30 seconds” isn’t going to be front page news.

“Council messes up street lighting / school admissions / planning application” is always going to be more “interesting” . . . . .
