Buzz: Public information officer’s job-A A +A
Saturday, December 21, 2013
A PUBLIC information officer of a government agency needs to review her job description.
When a reporter sought her comment on an issue concerning her agency’s actions relative to super typhoon Yolanda, she said she is not authorized to speak on behalf of her department. This puzzled the reporter as he only required the information officer to enumerate her department’s projects.
“Unsa diay kaha iyang trabaho? Dekorasyon ra diay na siya? (What is really her job? Is she a mere wallflower?)” the miffed reporter asked.
