- 5 Crisis Communications Tips You Can Learn From ABC’s Scandal
By Krystal Tingle, Senior Account Executive
Anyone who knows me can attest that other than news and NBA playoffs, I am not a huge TV watcher. Now, thanks to Grey’s Anatomy creator, Shonda Rhimes, ABC’s newest political drama, “Scandal,” is my guilty pleasure. I am literally counting down the hours until Thursday’s season finale. “Scandal” stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, Washington D.C.’s biggest fixer. Pope is a crisis communications phenom inspired by the career of Judy Smith, former deputy press secretary in George H. W. Bush’s White House and a consultant in high-profile cases like Monica Lewinsky. The fast-paced, sexy political drama is not only entertaining; it can teach you a thing or two about how to handle a crisis.
