As a public service, I'll add nominees to the Dumb PR Response Hall of Fame in today's news. (Legendary winners include Richard Nixon's "I am not a Crook" statement and former Virginia Senator William Scott's decision to call a news conference to deny that he was the dumbest person in the Congress). This week I nominate Princes Charles' effort to squelch a previously unpublished, never-broadcasted and apparently baseless rumor. Now the whole world knows -- thanks to Internet websites and his own misguided press strategy-- that there were rumors circulating that there was a sexual encounter between him and a male member of his staff.

Prince: 'Nothing to hide or fear'
