|If you got your head caught in that,|
I suppose it would be a bad press.
Whenever someone is being destroyed by the news media you might hear the saying “There’s no such thing as bad press”. The idea behind the saying is that any attention is good attention. The news might show Dennis Rodman kicking a camera guy in the nutsack and talk about how he’s crazy, but it gets people talking about him and years later he gets to hang out with Kim Jong Un and do lots of other fun stuff.
Unfortunately this saying is not true. There is such thing as bad press especially these days with more and more atrocious things occurring. If you don’t believe me consider Penn State University after the Jerry Sandusky story broke. I’m sure that was a boon to their enrollment numbers. Ask any school or mall shooter’s family if there’s such thing as bad press. These types of things never used to happen with regularity, but now that they do I think it’s time to retire this saying. No one should benefit from such tragedies anyway so this isn’t a saying we should want to be true. There IS such a thing as bad press and it happens to you and your relatives when you do insanely evil shit. Let’s stop encouraging people by saying “There’s no such thing as bad press.” That is one dumbass phrase!
