Re: "Private Foundation-List" Petition for referendum

I bet I could find such training.  I'd like to do some of the media work.  I'm a natural talker, but I need some rules to make sure that I say the right things as I can spew garbage from time to time.

It's usually a pre-requisite for companies (like Novell) before
they'll turn someone loose with the press. They usually have a
consultant or in-house PR folks go through some guidelines, mock
interviews, etc. What you should expect from an interview, the do's
and don'ts and things you can/can't comment on. (For instance, I have
a pretty free hand when talking about things with Novell, but you
won't ever see me giving any answers/opinions on our financials. Which
is A-OK with me...)
