Should you be polite to an obnoxious reporter?


Yes, of course. If you want to get your message out, you must know how to deal with the message bearer. Deal with it.

Being a former reporter and an award-winning one at that, being obnoxious is a common personality trait in reporters. Who else could ask sensitive questions like "Are you are crook," or "Your parents just died in a car accident. How do you feel?" That’s why I got out! I couldn’t ask those questions.

Many reporters are very nice, so don’t tar the industry with one brush.
