I used to have friends that worked in the department that dealt with News Release at assemblies and we always had a chuckle at the Press Releases that were carefully scripted with the usual “fill in the blanks” (Bethel speaker , attendance , number of baptised etc) for distribution to the local newspapers.
Most responded by carefully filing the Press Release in the b (for bin) file , but some newspapers print the press release in full. I couldn't help but laugh at the one for the 2009 district assemblies which helpfully includes the observation that ”the audience broke out in spontaneous prolonged applause “ at the conclusion of the assembly. This does seem quite remarkable considering that it was written in a press release written many months before the convention actually took place. Clearly the gift of accurate prophecy is still up and running at Brooklyn.
