Her Perfect Media Storm: Exclusive Interview with Jennifer Rowan

I think it’s safe to say that you never, ever want to experience the personal assault of having your name dragged through the mud,
being called “Hitler” in the national media, and receiving death threats by every possible method… All over a simple misunderstanding that was only fact-checked by one out of a landslide of prominent journalists and bloggers.

I think it’s safe to say that you never, ever want to experience the personal assault of

  • having your name dragged through the mud,
  • being called “Hitler” in the national media, and
  • receiving death threats by every possible method…

All over a simple misunderstanding that was only fact-checked by one out of a landslide of prominent journalists and bloggers.

Today’s interview explores

  • exactly what went wrong,
  • how it could have been handled better, and
  • how Jennifer can recover her good name online after this terrible experience. 

This is the first time she’s ever shared her story online. I’m honored that she’s trusting me (and you) to hear her story about what happened – and how you can AVOID having this happen to you. She’s a truly brave and brilliant woman.

    OK – I’m at 4 minutes or so and have tears in my eyes…the interview is that moving.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment, Croissant_U. Jennifer’s been receiving encouraging, warm messages by every possible method, which makes me so happy it brings tears to my eyes. We met through happenstance on Facebook. What are the odds? I think it was a divine setup. :)

    Great interview Lori. It seems to me that the essence of good online reputation management is very similar to the accepted wisdom of off-line reputation management – front up to the story. Explain, educate and admit mistakes and apologise if necessary. The very worst thing you can do is to ignore the story, either by purposefully burying your head or by not knowing what is being said about you. Great advice as always. Vx

    • You put this so well, Vix! Thanks so much for having a listen and contributing your savvy. :)
