Confusing PR email

Dear friends who work in marketing and PR. Promise me you won’t write things like this.

How confusing can this be? Referencing multiple time zones in the same sentence, changing previous embargo times.

The attached news release regarding [redacted] will be distributed on Thursday, Jan. 6 at 8 a.m. EST, however, the embargo on the news lifts at 11 a.m. PST tomorrow, Jan. 5, so you can include the news in your stories regarding the [redacted] launch. I’ve also attached images.

Also, keep in mind that [redacted] news embargo also moved up to tomorrow, Jan. at 11 a.m. due to [redacted] launch.

Yes, the date was missing in that second paragraph.
