Tips for Surviving Crisis

Ron Fournier has an interesting review of Masters of Disaster by Chris Lehane and Mark Fabiani, two political strategists who helped Bill Clinton survive Whitewater, the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and impeachment.

He notes: "I covered the Clinton White House and frequently dealt with both Lehane and Fabiani. While we had our share of tussles, I benefited from their strategy to selectively leak information, at times damaging to Clinton. The tactic gave them some measure of control over the story (when it would break and what reporter would cover it) and, according to their book, generated for their client the single most important commodity in a crisis: trust."
