One important part of my job is serving as the media contact for our tours, doing the interviews for local news. This is an aspect I enjoy and have some skill at, if you are fans of our Facebook Page then you see the links for news coverage where one of us is quoted. An article was posted online quoting me yesterday and it brought to my mind the frustration in being misquoted. At least once a week something is published with a slightly different twist on what I said. The most recent infraction was a quote taken from a radio interview, yeah a recording. Yet they still change a few words to fit their needs. Oh well it’s just something to deal with. Even the LOC has misquoted me, which created a situation we had to send an email to our boss about.
My friend Ree over at Mad Rock is starting to get a buzz around the videos she took of flooding in Australia. I can’t help but think that with this will come misrepresentation of her awesome travel story. Even with that said, I’m thrilled for her. You must go check it out.
