Getting Publicity You Want...
and hating it.
Will this news item have Cap'n Buhne ending comments on his blog once again?
Looks like this blogger, hiding behind the alias Spocko, has been attacking talk radio he doesn't like, namely right- wing talk radio specifically in the form of KSFO.
We've seen some comments here disparaging KSFO. I'm not sure I've ever listened to them.
What gets me is the story says Spocko had something like fifteen regulars visiting his blog every day. Wow! Is this guy the King of Bay Area Bloggers, or what?
So, the guy has a rarely visited blog and uses stuff he hears on KSFO to try and get advertisers to stop buying space on at least some KSFO shows. KSFO doesn't like it so they put pressure on Spocko. Spocko pulls some stuff off his blog.
Hey, I can understand KSFO not wanting the guy to misrepresent things that have been said on their radio shows. But you can't help wonder if they're making a mountain out of a molehill. After all, hardly anybody was visiting the blog anyway.
At least not many visited before a big issue was made out of it and it made the papers. Let's see how many people start visiting his blog now.
Sometimes it's probably best to just let misfits be misfits. They could have tried to keep this issue a little more low profile.
Who handles this sort of stuff for radio stations anyway?
