In the sentence "Handling media requests alone can require negotiation skills,and we do our best to accommodate them.", does "accommodate" mean "develop"?

no-accomodate basically would be "to arrange things for them or with them,to make them happy" sometimes things are accomodated outside of usual practices in business. sometimes you will also see "accomodations" referring to a hotel stay,arranged in advance.

Accommodate on that sentence for me would mean to deal with them or give them your attention. The sentence could mean that in order for you to avoid harassment from media people you need to have skills in negotiating or convincing power for them to believe in you.

Hi there! In my understanding accommodate in the sentence means to render service preferably in handing media request.
