What would you think of someone who invited you to a party, and then wasn’t home when you arrived?
That’s exactly how reporters and editors feel when you invite coverage and then fail to respond to inquiries in a timely fashion. Journalists, like party guests, don’t take kindly to what amounts to rudeness. Be a no-show for your own news story, and you can expect the media to ignore your message in the future.
