Allow me to introduce you to the typical public relations person you are paying for. Blackbook magazine featured a public relations firm doing quite well in California.

We were directed on playing up the blonde roll (sic) and they definitely captured those parts! Like all reality shows it was cleverly edited and we are excited to be apart (sic) of a successful film.”
You’re paying for people who are illiterate – yes. From Sarah Pallin’s press agent who uses “And though” to open a sentence when she meant “Although,” still a bad way to start a sentence, to these two. Here are comments from Blackboard readers:

PR on Mon Jul 13, 2009 at 12.23 am These girls give PR a bad name. I hope they aren’t trusted with press releases- roll? apart? Sounds like they didn’t need much direction.
How about this grammatically correct sentence? Just a friend on Mon Jul 13, 2009 at 10.38 am These girls are not stupid actually! If you know anything about them they are quite smart, U of M grad and very sucessful!
