WSJ’s Kara Swisher Honored By PRSA, Video Blogs From Event
November 30, 2007
The female half of AllThingsD, Kara Swisher of the Wall Street Journal was recently honored PRSA’s Silicon Valley Chapter. While she was there, she shot a video featuring Brandee Barker, head of Facebook PR, who Kara reports, had a “harrowing day handling Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes,” which is doing a piece on the social-networking site with an apparent focus on–also, of course–privacy); the impact of the possibly looming recession on tech; Apple’s iPhone (of course, of course); Google (triple of course); the resurgence of the enterprise space; and the fate of Yahoo.”
Brandee basically gave a gracious “no comment,” and we can’t say we blame her. Kara goes on to say to Robert Scoble, “being honored by public relations officials is kinda like code word to annoy us all night with pitches, right?” You are soooo on to us, Kara!
