You Know You Need Media Training When…

Courtesy of my soon-to-be-colleague Bob LeDrew comes this video of RyanAir CEO Michael O’Leary at a news conference.

As Bob says:

“The miracle is that nobody’s called for his resignation yet! I’m stunned. The Guardian, for example, merely put it in their quotes of the week.”

Enough said, really.

  • While I agree that he could probably use some media training, I think that everyone is taking this video a little too seriously. He’s just kidding around…

  • Freudian that he kept putting his pen in his mouth before and after answering the question…

  • Shawna

    So…do you think their PR people moved into crisis mode following that wee little comment?
    A good example to use for future media training!

  • Brutal! I appreciate the joke, but at the same time… Couldn’t he have come up with something better?
