When no press come to your press conference

On the one hand, as an organizer, I know it's one of the worst possible nightmares. On the other hand, even those not in public affairs know to give more than 15 minutes' notice:
Fema sorry for 'fake' conference (BBC)

The US Federal Emergency Management Administration has apologised for having its employees pose as reporters at a hastily arranged news conference. No actual reporters were able to attend Fema's televised briefing on the fires in California on Tuesday because they were only given 15 minutes notice. . . .
Perhaps slightly understandable with small organizations, but completely unacceptable from a government agency...
