When news breaks, the desire for fresh updates and insightful commentary becomes a priority for all media. Whether the story making headlines is happy or sad, dramatic or devastating, those of us representing clients with relevant content need to share our sources with the media.

When one of the worst terrorist attacks in recent memory broke out in France last month, the eyes of the world were trained on the headquarters of the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper. Our team at Belfort Group watched the unfolding situation, and knew it would be important for the media to turn to experts who could comment on how Paris law enforcement would track the perpetrators of the attack.

To answer Bloomberg’s call for experts,  BG introduced client Robert Milton, a former commander of the Metropolitan Police at New Scotland Yard and a Professor of Criminal Justice at Bay Path University. Milton, a law enforcement veteran whose background and experience was very applicable,  Skyped in from London for a live segment and provided insights into how Paris law enforcement would go about tracking down the attackers.

As the day developed, more questions arose including the possibility that a lone wolf was responsible for the attack. BG provided Professor Milton as a source to the International Business Times, where he discussed the “hallmarks” of al-Qaeda that appeared present in components of the Charlie Hebdo attack.
