Boffo PR: Hey, it’s the oldest PR trick in the book, but AARP the magazine is going to score big with this “research” finding it is releasing today. Revealing that older women are dating younger guys does two things: 1. It generates press, and 2. It helps the magazine “reposition” the perception of its reader in the minds of 23-year-old media planners. Now those media planners are thinking, “Yuck! That’s my mother they’re talking about.”
