I made a special mini series in the theme of the Bill O’Reilly Inside Edition era trash and flash, even ripping Inside’s ol computer terminal cursor in the “edition” part of the logo.
The intention was to do a 3 parter series for the month of April, to coincide with Autism Awareness Month. The copy that was used for the Sound on Tape or SOT, the narration track was from another blog I publish that had about 4,000 words, I then was reading it and fumbling so the editing the sound cuts was really difficult. Part two was published in May and it focused on a really complex story line between the infamous KRON sale in 2001 and the war NBC picked with affiliates.
So I finally posted some content on my SnapChat last week in regards to Tucker Carlson’s departure at the News Channel with Searchlights. It’s unclear what the hell is really going on, but that’s not my point today…
It’s all about superficiality and parasocial relationships the Boomers and the remaining Silents (folks born before the mid 1940s.) While a number of them remain off the Internet grid, their social media is old fashioned cable, and the talent on camera.
I have not been doing much newsgathering of late. I’ve attempted to take a break on social media… since it seems like there really isn’t a reason to be on there if I’m only being seen and not heard. Still am a bit jaded year into wanting to get be a freelancer IRL but I’ve given up those chances. It’s not that easy to get the foot into the door. Because the doors of late are wide shut.
The New York Times had a story a week ago today, detailing the sins of local media. Ironically I found this story a week ago today as well via a Google search of “do meteorologists get laid off like journalists do?” Sadly our meteorologists in the Boston market are in awe of mini-me climate of Charleston, N.C. in the Northeast. Shut the fuck up please!
