When is too much publicity a bad thing?

I struggled with the decision to write this.  I worry that with every word I write, I too am capitalizing on a tragedy.  I also worry that I am speaking out against my own profession.  But there comes a time in every publicist’s career, when they question whether something that is “newsworthy” should be shelved for something more important.   That time, for me, came yesterday as I sat glued to the tv, to my Twitter, and to any source that could shed some light on the events that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday morning at around 9:40 am.

This post isn’t about gun control.  It isn’t about mental illness, the impact of violent video games, or the importance of fact checking within “breaking” news.  It’s about one simple thing:  trading in publicity for personal communication.

First, I want to make something very clear:  I am NOT taking a dig at any media that has been covering the Newtown, CT tragedies.  We are a society that feeds off of 24-hour news consumption and you have all been doing your jobs, many with little sleep, cold hands and feet, and very heavy hearts.  I know it must not have been easy and I’ve read every word, listened to every interview, and watched every press conference.  I wonder if we the people realize how our constant need for facts and information can often lead to incorrect identifications, misleading alignments between illness and motive, and awkward reactions of officials that offer information that the public just doesn’t need to know.  It is our hunger for “truth” that leads the media to rush to break a story, and in the case of what happened on Friday, scramble to release facts before facts are actually known – often doing more harm than good.

As a publicist, I’m often tasked with creating a story, or crafting a statement, or responding to a crisis.  As a daughter, an aunt, and a friend, I’m realizing that there comes a time when the news should be tuned out, and stories should be told in the home.  Sometimes, too much information can be damaging and lead to misconception, fear, even judgement.  A very wise man said “don’t seek out the devil so you can sleep at night.”  No amount of news coverage can make sense out of senseless.

I’m not telling you to stop watching the news.  But, if you’re like me, take a step away and focus on life.

Try to turn off the tv.  Talk to your children.  Hug your loved ones.  Tell the stories that should be told, the ones that celebrate life.
