Hi, Lorna: What happened to your pursuit of the San Jose Mercury News? Did the reporter listen to you? To make sure that your blogs are properly covered in a court case by reporters, you should submit them in court as part of the court records so in case there is inaccuracies in your blogs, reporters will not be blamed for the inaccuracies. If I cannot make it in court, the Sta. Clara District Attorney is accessible for comment. If not, I usually send my area correspondent/legman (Mr. Ronnie Estrada, a San Jose resident) to cover the case on my behalf. Mr. Estrada's video, still cameras and tape recorder are reliable tools to extract accurate information from Mr. Menor's or Mr. Menor's lawyers' post-court appearances and comments. A good defendant in a court case would employ his own press relations officer (if he needs to pay the PRO he has to do so after all a PR job is also a profession) to issue a press statement in any court development in a timely manner. In my case, because one of my outlet's deadlines is sometimes less than 24 hours (GMANews TV), I cannot wait for one or two days for Mr. Ben Menor's comments to be withheld. Otherwise my news item will become stale (bilasa na or panis na) if my competition beats me to the story. And the press release should so state that it is authorized by Mr. Menor, himself, so Mr. Menor will have no room to disown the statement. Take care. Regards to Ben. All the best! Joseph G. Lariosa
