Respond to his answer
I would try to follow what I have been directed to do by responding to what I can to the media and not booking interviews for my boss. I would give the media what information I could that was necessary and anything that wan not necessary, I would not relay. I think it would be important to share necessary information because that is my job. People have the right to know what is going on. I can understand why he does, but I am responsible for my department.
I will give Burt Taylor the information that is prepared for the media, TV, and newspapers. He can decide if it is what he wants, especially since I am a new hire. I will attempt to get in good standing with the media, newspaper, TV, and online institutions. That will benefit our company. If any crisis happens, I will get with my boss and we will decide what we release. Once my boss sees I know what I am doing then we can look at things and see if we can do them different.
I will talk to my boss if we come upon any problems. Communication is the important thing to do. That way we both know what is going on. I will attend meeting so that I know what is happening, so hopefully any crisis can be prevented. I will be checking online, TV, newspapers, and media daily to make sure we are knowledgeable.
