Never Off the Record

What do Paula Deen, Donald Sterling and Mitt Romney all have in common?

They were all outed by what they thought were (or tried to explain away) comments made in a “private” setting.

At CommCore, we remind our clients that no conversation is “off the record” or “confidential” any more.  Now waiters record speeches at “private” functions, staff report statements in the office and girlfriends record statements in the “privacy” of one’s home.

We won’t go into the issue of what statements just shouldn’t be made any time, any place. In the age of TMZ, YouTube, and Twitter one misstep can spread like wildfire.
