Dear (public relation agency name):
The Freeman received your invitation for (name of tiny event plugging tiny product/artist) at (name of tiny club in Manhattan). Thanks.
Although the Freeman is only 100 MILES AWAY from New York City, we are a community newspaper and only cover local events and people. If far away, we only cover events that have a local angle.
Please be mindful that people using your (soup/soap/etc) in our area is not enough of a news hook for us to do a story.
But you are welcome to keep sending us your (soup/soap/etc). We’ll be happy to throw it away for you.
(Name of tiny -- and mean -- editor)
