It could move from the inconvenient state of reality and enhance its own propaganda, like this, for instance.
And yes, everyone in the biz has an opinion or two. Fortunately no one is falling for the fantasy.
The "Back Story" charade has drawn considerable scorn and belittlement from both current and past KRONvicts. One prominent station staffer: "Just when you think we couldn't get any lower, we get lower. --'I feel like I'm at kindergarten class."
So, yes, predictably, the inanity and foolishness of Back Story is still resonating in the Battery corridor --hell, KRON's own dim-witted GM couldn't even put out a correct press release. To wit:
“There is something naturally compelling about a newsroom and what it takes to gather news every day. We’re a unique station willing to take chances when it comes to developing local programming and we think people will be fascinated by this untold, unscripted series.” says KRON 4 VP/General Manger (sic) Ashley Gold Messina
Does KRON have a game plan for the future? Does anyone even care anymore? Can you continue the current drivel with a bunch of nincompoops running the circus? No, no and no. It doesn't help matters too when you have Generalissimo Pero still screaming and yelling. You can scream and yell at a bunch of 20-something "producers" but the rank and file you can't screw with. It's a mother of all Rubik's Cube at 900 Front. The new digs and equipment was but a temporary distraction --now, from the heart of the storm, the mood is back to its normal Dire Straits. We're not surprised.
*That KGO-TV fired some idiotic producer over his stupid and naive tweets was a major yawner --(he's an idiot) --the real funny sidebar is this add from Matthew Keys:
(Editor’s note: If you are reading this via a link from the San Francisco Chronicle’s website, the author of this post would like to express his disdain for reporter Evan Sernoffsky and his editor Terry Robertson, both of whom felt it important to include incorrect and irrelevant information about this author in their aggregated report on the following topic. As such, the author of this post would like to kindly offer the suggestion that Mr. Sernoffsky and Mr. Robertson go fuck themselves.)
Uh, enough said.
*At KTVU the new 4PM Newscast begins next week with some pissed-off people in the house who might have been passed over for the mediocre Mike Mibach. And there's plenty to choose from.
*The mentally-challenged morons known as Sarah and Vinnie have a problem: She (Sarah) has thrown her partner, moron#2, under the bus. No big deal. But how so? She quietly complains that he's not that good performing his duties. Maybe he needs to be less stiff.
* KQED's Michael Krasny can be a real mean person. Ask a certain former KGO Radio weekend talk-show host.
