Slap and tickle
Even television news journalists have had enough of the bullshit.
The Sacramento Bee reports that roving reporter Naj Alikhan bolted from "Good Day Sacramento" shortly after being asked to fake a bug bite to spice up a story about the West Nile virus. Alikhan said no. He's now a flak for the SEIU.
I remember a time when it was the people who would slap themselves that ended up in PR.
That's same show that brought you the classy beer-for-the-homeless stunt, by the way.
Recently I overheard one of the more well-known Sacramento reporters begging the governor's press aides for something, anything to cover.
He's a survivor; he's the future.
