10 Things reporters don’t want to hear

  1. You just write those sensational stories to sell newspapers

  2. You put a terrible headline on that story

  3. The chief executive is gone for the day. I’ll have him call you tomorrow.
    No, I can’t reach him now.

  4. Why don’t you just run the statement we sent you instead of asking all these questions?

  5. You seem like a good reporter. I’m sure you would never write anything that would make
    me angry or upset.

  6. I can’t go beyond what’s in the press release

  7. No comment

  8. I thought we were talking ‘off the record’

  9. Do you know how much we spend advertising on your radio station

  10. Did you receive my news release
