How To Avoid Talking About Something
By Gene Griessman PhD
Millions of Americans never knew that Franklin Delano Roosevelt could not walk.
One big reason. Newspapers never reported it. And one big reason newspapers never reported it was Stephen Early, FDR’s press secretary.
When reporters would begin to pry, Early had one sentence ready for them.
“It’s not a story,” Early would say.
That’s a power phrase you might want to use when you have to deal with prying questions.
If you want to give your response a humorous twist, you can say, “If you’re a reporter, tell your editor it’s.not a story.”
