Let’s let our friends in Taiwan, NMA-TV, take over:
“Dog meat sold in a Chinatown meat market? It looked like the scoop of the century to James Schugel, a reporter for Minneapolis CBS affiliate WCCO.
Schugel reported that a Chinatown shop had sold dog meat, but it’s actually just a misunderstanding. See, Schugel was investigating a puppy mill operation in Minnesota that apparently sent their dogs to 336 East Broadway in New York City. When he found the address was a Chinese-run meat market, he instantly leapt to the suspicion that the dogs were ending up in the cooking pot.
Schugel called up the staff to confirm his suspicions. But somewhere in the conversation, the words “dog” and “duck” got confused, and the staff confirmed that they do in fact sell meat from all kinds of animals to be eaten. This was enough for Schugel to run off with his report. Husky hash! Schnauzer stew! Keeshond kebabs!
Luckily, it quickly became clear that Schugel was barking up the wrong tree. The misunderstanding was cleared up, and WCCO quietly scrubbed the story from their website. The New York Post correctly quoted the employee of Dak Cheong Meat Market as saying “How could we sell dog meat? This isn’t China. This isn’t Korea!”
I don’t know, KQED-FM. You can’t be talking about how you have a “commercial-free” radio broadcast if you’re simultaneously running ads promoting “the Sexiest Night* in Television,” right?
My car’s tape deck, from back when they made tape decks:
I cry foul.
*I missed the entire ad yesterday – I thought at first they might have been promoting Fox-TV, but now I think they were beating the drums for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Implant Fashion Show on CBS.

Speaking of whom, here’s MUNI’s Death Spiral from Greg Dewar and Joe Eskenazi. (Boy, the head of MUNI at the time just flipped out, I mean, really flipped out over this bit in the SF Weekly from last year. He hosted a big meeting in response to this one article. It was epic, I’ve been told.)
Anyway, do you know what that “treat” is, the one referenced in the MUNI ad?
So this is just all a tease, turns out. But you try if you want, type in mormon.org/oakland.
I see a bunch of crap but I don’t see the answer to the question that the Morms themselves raised on their very own billboard. (Speaking of which, nice 48-foot board you got there, CBS. Maybe when there’s another Prop 8 you can make even more money, huh?)

But what about the 415? I mean, are there billboards in Oaktown touting mormon.org/sf, you know, equal time and whatnot?
Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, well what about something else, like:
