Here’s what’s up with that – If you operate a television news station in the San Francisco Bay Area, life’s a little easier when you don’t plaster your rolling stock with gaudy graphics.
‘Cause if you put your station name on your vans, then some vandals will come around with a can of spray paint (what’s that? you yourself don’t carry spray paint with on your person at all times?) and write “Fuck The Corporate Media” all over said vans. Thusly.
Circa 2008 – a live remote capable truck on the streets of San Francisco, anonymous and therefore safe from mischief. Click to expand:
(If you don’t believe that, then type in “954 Front” in the San Francisco section of Mapjack. See?)
But now, this “legend among journalists” is with the corporate media (or what looks like the corporate media, what with all the ads ‘n stuff) himself.
Isn’t it ironic, dont’cha think?
