Hill Staffers: Your Reality Is Not Made for TV
Huffington Blog Post
April 16, 2014
"There are reports that a reality show starring "D.C. up-and-comers" is in the works. If you wanted to attach an anchor to your career in politics, my advice to you would be to sign up.
Whether this show ever gets off the ground remains to be seen, but I would offer a few words of wisdom for anyone considering an audition.
Whether working for a candidate, elected official, or a cause, the first rule of a political staffer is "it's not about you." Everything you do on the job should advance your principal's or constituents' greater goals. It's not clear how appearing on a television show does that."
