Communications No, No #127

Larry King to ex-congressman Eric Massa: “Are you gay?”

Eric Massa: “I’m not gonna answer that…  why don’t you ask my wife… and the 10,000 men I served with in the navy.”

On second thought, maybe you shouldn’t ask all ten thousand of them.

And for you Canadians here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mOHxms110I&NR=1

The full interview also illustrates Communications errors #134, 45, 78, 321, 1, 2, 8 and 36 through 112, making it an official communications trainwreck.  Sometimes you gotta say no.

Update!

In a perfect example of the Gary Hart Rule (if asked, they will follow up) at least 9,000 of the 10,000 navy men have been contacted and a significant number have said “why yes, Mr. Macca hit on me.”
