There's now even more need to take care going off-the-record with a reporter.
There has been a disturbance in The Force... Picture this: I was introduced to a well known press feature writer. As my name was spoken ("I'd like you to meet Michael Brown...") she shook my hand with normal warmth. But when the next words were uttered (..."he's a media trainer.") she snatched her hand away, turned her back and walked off, presumably to talk to people not on the dark side.
