The two scariest moments for PR people are the few minutes before an interview and the few minutes after an interview, when everyone is still wearing their mic, but no one is “on.” Why is that scary? People forget that everything that is said is taped. This was caught by local Sacramento station News10.
Here’s a link to the video on CNN. The thing is there isn’t much said until the last few seconds when Fiorina says her friend said something about Sen. Boxer’s hair, and Fiorina says, “so yesterday.” It shouldn’t be news. It’s not news, it’s CNN. What does this mean? It means that you need to be really, really boring sometimes when you’re mic’d up.
