What’s that sound you hear? It’s the sound of a thousand news desk staffers asking that you please don’t call them.

These next two weeks will surely be even more of a challenge for PR folk, with the Papal visit and the all important Pennsylvania primary upon us.

TVNewser has a detailed roundup of who’s assigned to cover Pope Benedict’s first US visit.

Our tip: stay away from general assignment desk reporters, producers, or any others who may be pulled in as extra resources over the next two weeks. If you can, stick to specific beat reporters who may not be as affected by the news.
