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…

The Large, Wasteful, Obsolete, Expensive “PedMount” News Boxes of the Streets of San Francisco – Aesthetics vs. Our 1st Amendment

Does SFGov tax newspapers to run these green monsters?

Yes. Yes it does.

Mayor Willie Brown didn’t like this, so now we have this.

Most of these green boxes are empty most of the time.

Every so often, people come by to clean the big, green mostly-empty-all-the-time Pedmounts by illegally parking in bus zones, or simply double parking. The workers need to scan a barcode inside the Pedmounts to prove that they actually visited, cause, you know, it’s hard to actually tell what good they’re doing.

These Pedmounts were a bad idea from the beginning and they’re an even worser idea now, in this day and age. (We also have to pay for them by having all these giant 17-foot-tall ads on sidewalks.)

Oh well.
