get me a new media training video

When it comes to media training, I'm on the record suggesting that it's past time to find a new video to replace the tried and true, but outdated, Bob Newhart episode favored for decades. (It's a good idea to include a request for updated training content beyond the video, too.)

Reader Joe Bonner thinks he's found the replacement: An episode of Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation comedy on NBC, titled "The Reporter." I've included the 22-minute episode below for you to judge and comment. If not this one, what else might a media trainer use these days to show trainees what to watch out for in media interviews? Just like Bob's well-worn episode, needs to wrap a cautionary tale in comedy, but in ways today's audiences can appreciate. Leave your suggestions in the comments or email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz, or message me on Twitter.
