1. Sounds like Broadwell will not be discussing anything publicly herself

All communication will be from a public relations / advertising firm.

3. From the Ad Age article on this

Paula Broadwell Hires Glover Park for PR Support
Move to Bring in Crisis Expertise Follows Jill Kelley's Hire of D.C. Firm Smith & Co.

By: Alexandra Bruell Published: November 19, 2012

Paula Broadwell, the biographer for disgraced CIA Director General Petraeus who's found herself smack-dab in the middle of a scandal dominating headlines for the past week, has hired Glover Park Group's managing directors, Dee Dee Myers and Joel Johnson, for communications counsel, the WPP crisis shop told Ad Age....

The tone of coverage about Ms. Broadwell is already changing,
with a number of news outlets of late reporting that she has expressed regret about the affair. It's not immediately clear whether Glover Park Group had anything to do with these reports, many of which point to anonymous sources. But such coverage takes the spotlight off the investigation into the affair's potential impact on national security and refocuses it on an individual trying to fix a personal mistake.

4. That's why I did not post it in breaking news

I am sure there are people who do not care.

But it's an interesting footnote, this latest hire.

7. What's the usual progression?

 

I don't think we'll find anyone here who doesn't think this isn't all about making a ton of money.
