Well, they should first investigate what happen. In the case that cheating really happened then It think they should give their self time first to relax and plan on how to move on.

Crisis communication is sometimes considered a sub-specialty of the public relations profession that is designed to protect and defend an individual, company, or organization facing a public challenge to its reputation.

Knowlton-Petraeus is in a very difficult position here. Whether she channels the rage or play the dutiful wife, she has something to lose. Hopefully she has a strong support system and a good PR team to back her up.

Some great advice. The first rule of PR in a crisis is to see how you can turn it into something good. Coming out of a crisis with your head held high often has a lot more impact than normal PR would outside of a crisis.

If she could take the advice you've given and maintain dignity whilst promoting a good cause in the process it would be crisis PR at its best.

I enjoyed reading this, thank you.
