Normally the media is welcome but the recent Harley Davidson Shareholders meeting was off limits to the media. Some say that is a huge red flag that something is wrong.

That is interesting. Keeping the media out will most likely backfire on them. Now the media will dig even harder for financial news that they should have addressed head on at the Shareholders meeting.

If you look around the internet today these are just two of the many news stories that are being written about HD blocking the media from their recent Shareholders meeting.

As said, the act of blocking the media is causing more harm than if they allowed them into the meeting.

Yep, it didn’t seem like a good strategy but who am I to say?    }=  ^*?

Tough times call for open communication. You need to make the media trust you.
