Frisco is the Only Big City in America Where the MSM Doesn’t Advertise Itself on Its News Vans – Why is That? – One Simple Trick

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

I guarantee you that this is a local news van from a major network affiliate, complete with an SFPD-issued parking permit on the dash.

But where are the garish graphics you’d expect to see?

Well they were ash-canned due to vandalism. So if the Blac Block doesn’t know that you’re the MSM, then they are less likely to attack your vehicles.

That’s the One Simple Trick.

Oh yeah, the Bay Area is also America’s Capital of News Camera Theft, but that’s another story…

ATTENTION MSM: Is This Vehicle 1) A Bulldozer; 2) Like a Bulldozer; or 3) Not a Bulldozer, AT ALL?

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

The reason why this vehicle isn’t a bulldozer is because bulldozers are tracked.

The reason why this vehicle isn’t even “like a bulldozer” is because bulldozers are tracked.

Ergo, Answer #3 must be correct.

So what is it? It’s a construction vehicle. I mean it is, right? So why not call it that instead of calling every construction vehicle/earth mover on Earth a “bulldozer?”

Alternatively, you could call it a loader (kind of an everyday nickname), or a front loader, or a front-end loader.

END OF LINE.

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Up first is the effort from official Mayor Ed Lee lickspittle CW Nevius:

Mmmm…

I’ll reserve comment else I’ll get Blocked from his Twitter feed (again. You know, for calling him an SFGov lickspittle last month, which he totally is.)

So that was the pro journalist.

Comes now, The Tens.

Same night, same show:

Oh that’s right, CW Nevius gets paid the same whether he does a half-assed job or not.

(And CW’s Conventional Wisdom writing is worse than his photography.)

Oh well.

(And switch cameras (or devices or whatever) and the The Tens would still take much better photos.)

A clear victor: The Tens.

Thx 4 playing…

MSM Question of the Day: Do Trains Run on Gasoline? The SF Examiner’s “Caltrain could be off gas by ’19 under new plan”

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Uh, trains don’t run on gasoline, for various good reasons.

(I thought this was common knowledge.)

Or natural gas neither, if that’s what you were going for.

“Diesel” would have worked though.

Yes, like the jeans.

Just saying.

Bro-ham.

Meet Malia Cohen, Your New San Francisco Supervisor

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

This was the scene a month or so ago when District 10 Supervisor-Elect Malia Cohen was exiting City Hall right at the time Supervisor Sophie Maxwell was entering. (Think the last time I bumped into Malia was at, of all places, Roberta Achtenberg’s house about a half-decade ago.*)

Anywho, here are the fresh Meet Malia Cohen profiles from the big MSM papers. Choose one or both:

From Joshua Sabatini; or

From Rachel Gordon

Good Luck, Malia!

Home Country of Assault Victim Rests Easy After San Francisco Attack

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

I’ll tell you, the reason why the home county of the exchange student who was recently sexually asaulted in San Franciscois resting easy these days is that the media of said home country isn’t aware of the attack. And why’s that? Apparently, it’s the policy of San Francisco to not give out that kind of information. Per the SF Appeal:

“Police are not releasing information about the country the alleged victim is from in order to protect her identity, Tomioka said.”

I’m wondering how small a country has to be such that saying its name discloses the identity of any particular tourist in San Francisco.

Like if there’s a famous exchange program in Monaco (population 30k) and they send ten students a year to the States? That would seem to fit the bill, fair enough.

But what if the exchange student is from one of the following Big Ten tourist-producing countries (countries avec concomitant robust, aggresive media, of course)?

Germany

United Kingdom

France

China

Italy

Japan

Canada

Russia

South Korea

Mexico

If the student is from one of these countries, I’d be hard-pressed to see how saying the name of the country would identify any particular person from that country. Maybe there’s a written policy, or maybe there’s an unwritten rule, the way the MSM won’t report routine cases of Golden Gate Bridge jumpings?

That is all.
