Muck Rack Daily
Hello from Muck Rack, where you can get a snapshot of what journalists around the world are reading, thinking and commenting on right now.

From politicians to celebrities, anyone constantly in the public eye opens themselves up to angry letters, phone calls and tweets from disgruntled members of the population. In today’s volatile news climate, this is especially true for members of the media.

Whether you’re a print reporter or news anchor, most journalists have one thing in common: a steady flow of hate mail piling up on their desk.

Read this post on the Muck Rack blog for some real (and hilarious) hate messages reporters have received during their career and hear how one reporter is using her hate mail to bridge the current divide between the media and the public.
