    Question How to make contact with journalists?

    How to make contact with journalists? Easier said than done.

    If I call them they hang up by saying "Send email." If I turn up at their office, they take my draft and say, "Okay, we will let you know" which is actually a polite way of saying, "Your news item is rejected."

    How the hell do common people approach media?

    Hi! Well, its true that its a little difficult to get your story printed in the newspapers. See, journalists get their beats and usually cover those, you have to make sure that you are giving your news to the right section. National and international news is generally got from news agencies, or journalists are placed at particular spots to cover the news.
    If its local news, then you should get through to people of that section- and they will cover it, if they think its news worthy. If its lifestyle features, then you should send it to the features editor.

    Go to the Press club. Every city has one. Buy them booze. And then tell them your story.

    In industries like journalism, films, theatres etc its the network that helps more than talent/content. So, go to places where they go, and build some bonds first, before disclosing your story/article, or someone else might take credit for your work.
