KCBS, the all-news, 24/7 reliable radio outlet for breaking stories, traffic reports and weather, devoted five minutes --that's 5 minutes --at 9: 30 this (Tuesday) morning on a study saying it's not good if you place a tomato in the refrigerator.
It wasn't just a read-and-rip AP style story, it was a detailed, comprehensive live interview with some expert--and both anchors, Susan Leigh Taylor and Stan Bunger took part in the tomato paste, uh, piece.
Normally, the swell man that I am, I wouldn't deride a solid news operation like KCBS conducting such frivolity in the morning but this diddy took the cake.
Crazy as it is, we have an election in just two weeks; an ongoing war in Iraq and civil war in Syria; drought is killing California even after a wet weekend; two serious auto accidents overnight; real stories.
Yet, KCBS spent five minutes talking, giggling, to some woman expert about the hazards of placing tomatoes in the refrigerator --call the sandwich police.
