Why do I rail? Because no one else does.
They can continue to destroy radio in this market. They'll be called out.
They can have guinea pigs and robots act as air talent and de-humanize sales departments. Eventually, karma will set in. It always does.
They can marginalize the biz with their total disdain for basic human decency. They can continue to behave like bullies and vaporize community assets with defacto human crushers who act without the slightest bit of tolerance. They'll be called out.
They can reward their little people by passing out SweetJack coupons, but they'll be called out. Even their top dogs whose contracts they, contractually, must honor, will be held to account to look like the spineless souls they are and have always been. And they too will be forever remembered and called out.
I'm not the male Evita and playing Mother Theresa here. I don't need nor ask for any acknowledgement. Haven't you seen how they treat people? Can you not imagine the cameras beaming down on you? Have you not any feeling of disgust as they trample the heart out of a city's once-vibrant radio broadcast scene with all the sensitivity of a wrecking ball? Eventually, someone, something bigger than all of us and someone who's had enough and won't take it anymore will take it personally and then things might get interesting.
They're the cloud people. What a perfect metaphor. Clouds have no heart or soul. They're emotion-free and zombie-like. As I said, how apropos.
