SATURDAY QUICK HITS
Funny, the so-called journalistic halos at KCBS mightily coming to the aid of a colleague they quietly mocked only a few weeks earlier; that too, according to a few more sources. It happens in a lot of offices but I'm laughing at all the succulent sanctimonious bullshit.
Laughing in the newsroom, eh? Well laugh at this: The continuing rumors that Cumulus is going to buy your ass and begin outsourcing traffic and sports reports, Mr and Mrs 15 and 45.
*The station some of whose tonsils said I executed yellow journalism had a morning sports reporter breathlessly "report" a fake tweet a few weeks back only to have to go back on the air and say he was duped.
*Yeah, when I think of KCBS, I automatically think of Edward R. Murrow and Ben Bradlee.
*THIS JUST IN: Juicy and not-that-juicy gossip is a part of the model here. Most of it is true, it's just not the kind of material that, say, you'll see in the Chronicle, which is why you come here.
*Doug Sovern: I'd concentrate more on your reporting --if you want to lecture and kiss management ass, buy your boss lunch, dude.
*And you, the traffic yenta in the afternoon? Keep to accidents on 880 because you're not Diane Sawyer.
*Dave Padilla: In order to induce vomiting, listen to this hack on Saturday morning.
*If you're sensing I'm annoyed I am not. I'm on a mission for God to expose some of the biggest phonies in the business --self-righteous assholes who suck up to guys in black suits who routinely cheat on their wife so they can they can obliterate their house account credit cards.
*KCBS: the radio station that Fucked Over late night announcer, Dean Danos, and threw him out to the streets. Ladies and gentleman, if you only know how they treated this well-regarded and respected newsman, you'd gulp and collapse. One day, I'll let Dean tell you what happened.
*KCBS: the station that literally repeats a story over 16 times every weekend.
*The lead cheerleader in the KCBS newsroom bad-mouths every staffer, almost every reporter, and yes, the old and new ND--I have memos coming soon.
*Stan Bunger: The smarmy-ass disposition will be exposed soon and then people will know full well what kind of phony you really are.
*Melissa Culross: at the heart of the matter? No, not really, but intense influence nonetheless.
*Jack Swanson: You don't deserve all this aggravation so soon.
*Mike Sugerman: Those "About The Bay" reports would work real swell: about 30 years ago.
*Susan Leigh Taylor: "On my way in from Pacifica I saw a lot of mist and fog, blah, blah, blah..." Brilliant, honey. You should get a Marconi.
*Roberta and Stan in the morning: I'd rather be water-boarded.
*Bay Area radio, circa 2015: Diarrhea rediscovered.
*Thank God for KCSM.
