It's about time we delve into the mood of the forest because that's what you want and expect. I haven't been here long enough to complain endlessly; granted I'm still eager enough to be witness to some of the pervasive frauds that have invaded this town and beyond.
Belatedly still managing to crawl out of bed and look at the local dummies on TV; a few good ones are present but most of the mutts look like they just got their first assignment and giddy on up, a sort of yuppie media casserole, hey--look at me! I'm doing a live shot in Walnut Creek! Oh just shut the hell up, you bitch and do your job and go home already...KTVU is run by an ego-centric pisshead that has changed the atmosphere over at a place that used to rule the local TV news club. Now, even when they get it right, (and for the most part, they did), they have to royally screw it up with self-serving promos. 2! fucking days after the SFO crash. Who was the marketing genius that approved this bullshit? They should be hung out to dry but in the war of da numbers, maybe they're OK with all this, how swell. Wonder what Fred Zehnder, the legendary ND would think of this--hell, even good old Kevin O'Brien would have told the PR people to wait a week--shit, they haven't even buried the bodies yet!...Speaking of the downed Korean jet, you have to love the great SussMAN over at KKKSFO who started off a lovely Friday morning by insulting the Asian community: based upon anecdotal evidence "sent" to him, he made all kinds of accusations and then said not to fly Asiana. Then, he took a call and the caller said he had seen the same email, so was this something Sussman got or read from one of his knee-jerk wacko sites? Way to go Susser!...The Cumulus frat boys over on Knibber were up to their usual lame tricks and treats. Murph was Murph and the sound effect guy with the fake Jersey accent was aching to please, god--a day in the life of the vomit patrol. Even their beloved Giants won a game so they could retreat to the Larry Baer handbook and run one of their 18,000 promos...the morning news yakkers yakked away--"IT'S FRIDAY!", blurted out the 810 AM giggler. Predictable and still grating enough. Maybe she should rejoin the glee club! ...Stan Bunger is GOD and if you don't know it, he'll tell you...Did a fast detour to the mellow sounds of NPR and KCSM and temporarily escaped the asylum. I don't know how KCSM does it, but given a shoestring operation, they pull off miracles every day, 24/7...Threw on the Friday TV minutiae ---not much there either but what is there to expect? The network shows look all the same and Channel 2 still trying diligently to hold serve with angry Dave Clark and Miss Nancy, 2013, Torri Campbell. Don't get me wrong, MO2 is OK but do we really need all the coffee-talk fluff? Bring back Ross Macgowan, wait, Ross is selling mattresses or windows, I forgot...I need another cup of coffee, the day is just beginning.
