From long-term issues like sequester, the strategic review, the QDR, to bolt-from-the-blue incidents like the murders at the Navy yard - how does the Navy communicate to the public and the press in an information starved culture?
When the race to being wrong first seems to be a standard, how do we maintain the standard of being a useful source of information, but in a timely manner? In some areas like the budget that wander in to the political arena - how do we stay inside the lines but still inform?
What is the right mix of method and substance to explain to an often perplexed world our Navy and those things that impact it?
Returning to Midrats, but this time for the full hour this Sunday from 5-6pm Eastern will be our guest, Rear Admiral John Kirby, USN, the Chief of Information.
Join us live if you can with the usual suspects in the chat room and offer up your questions for our guest, but if you miss the show you can always listen to the archive at blogtalkradio.
