THE DAY AFTER Post-Mortem got a head start on Sunday Night. The tragedy in Orlando was in the rear-view mirror as the local TV stations, predictably, sent crews to the Castro district and began asking the standard -faire questions: "How do you feel?" "Are you scared?" "Will you attend the Pride Parade?"
Like I said, it's all predictable --no real news to report. A slew of MOST interviews without the slightest bit of thought and perspective.
The Bay Area isn't alone but it's one of the biggies. "News" outlets that are run by know-nothing louts with little sense of place or protocol.
The hashtag generation with an onslaught of fake "Breaking News" banners 12 hours after legitimate news had already taken place.
And what was to gain from everyone sending reporters out to the Castro? Oh, because it was a gay nightclub, I see. That's some genius research. And everyone was there because you can't interview a terrorism expert in the studio; you have to send some blond dimwit who has no clue about SF out to the Castro to ask some Guy named Bert if he's "scared" --I'd love to hear Bert say, "No, I'm not scared, in fact, I'm going to go have an ice-cream cone--are you scared?"
The people are smarter than the dumb reporters.
But I'm not surprised anymore.
