LETTER: No Media Coverage During Presidential Visit
To the Editor:
During the period from September 18 to 24 I was anxiously looking at every page of the LA Times to see any article about the 20-th anniversary of Armenia’s independence. Unfortunately there was NOT A .SINGLE WORD ABOUT ARMENIA.
Likewise, in Saturday 9/24 and Sunday 9/25 issues of LA Times there was NOT A SINGLE WORD ABOUT THE VISITING PRESIDENT OF ARMENIA S. SARKISSIAN TO LOS ANGELES , who arrived from New York where he delivered his Presidential speech at the UN General Assembly. This is simply an incomprehensible failure of PR!!!
Where are the leaders of our “patriotic” political, cultural and professional organizations representing around the half million Armenian community in S. California? Were they waiting for more important events to spend a few dollars and launch PR in reputable American press, not to mention local TV news channels, for the ultimate benefit of the Armenia Cause?
The silence of the Armenian Consulate in Glendale on these critical national news is also totally incomprehensible.
Is such a crying failure of PR work by the Armenian organizations the result of negligence or pure incompetence? APSOS!!
