Don’t chew gum and don’t disrespect the media

Sara McIntyre didn’t last long as the director of communications for BC Premier Christy Clark. In her first week, she had a confrontation with Vancouver tv reporters who wanted to interview the premier at a photo opp. McIntyre not only said no, but she chewed gum through the whole exchange with tv cameras following her across a trade show floor, and acted kind of dismissive of the media. Good tip, if you’re on camera, don’t chew gum.
