Spot illustration for a blog post about press conferences. The author’s contention: hi-tech companies often call press conferences to announce a new product release, then leak the information to selected media outlets before the press conference.

Result: tech journalists attend the conference only to discover they’re getting the “news” secondhand: a competitor has already published the information. They’re understandably resentful, and have little incentive to help publicize the company’s new product.
