Yes, Typos Are a Problem in Press Releases

By Published on .

The Bad-Pitch Blog has been inspired to run a contest seeking the funniest typo in a press release. So send along your submissions. Here at Ad Age, we have a recent one. It's not as funny as the "pubic relations" error, though. The PR woman in question hasn't done anything as obvious as that, she seems to have misspelled her title in the autosignature attached to the press releases she's sending out. So if you are currently working as a VP CONUMSER DIVISION for a PR firm based in Union Square (with offices in Australia), you might want to fix that.
