Online observations

The online scene in Sacramento today is especially entertaining …

From the Home page of cbs13.com:

Last week, we brought you a story about an accused shoplifter who used a baby as a shield against law enforcement in the parking lot of a strip mall. We have since learned the alleged shoplifting crime happened inside a Ross store, not a Marshalls as previously reported. We are sorry for any confusion caused by the initial report.

When I first read that story last week I thought, “No way!”, and it turns out my spidey-sense was right. Now, the only confusion I have is about the future of the human race.

From sacbee.com:

Editor’s Note: Comments on this story have been removed because too many users have violated our rules against personal attacks.

And from our very own web log:

Went to Barret Junior High with Lisa Ling. Stuck up snotty bitch who did everything possible to make life hell for the few kids who went there that were poor, like myself. Doesn’t have anything to do with her sister, just wanted to put that out there …

We haven’t had to use it in a while, but I think today it’s worth dusting off …

Stay classy, Sacramento.

  1. Considering a good 60% of cbs13.com’s stories have misspellings and duplicate sentences and just wrong information that are never corrected, it’s refreshing to know that they do care which discount store they are outing in a story. Whoever figured this out and wrote the correction should really get a promotion. That’s some good reporting.

  2. After extensive study and statisical analysis, Sacramento is due for a car into a house. I’ve been trying to keep the incident level down, but my analysis indicates that the more snarky and/or insolent and/or error filled the local e-commentary and/or news (doesn’t matter- they both have equal impact) is, the more likely it is that a vehicle will impact a structure. By my calculations, there is a > 97.5% chance of a news story of a vechicle/structure collision in the Bee within 3 days of 6/12/09, 9:26 p.m. (including Tuesday’s a.m. printing) I stake* my reputation on it. Oddly, the more stories about cannibalism are in the news, the LESS often people crash into buildings.

    * Oops!! Now 100% chance!

  3. Your senses were dead on. There is NOTHING good to steal from Ross. Marshalls has those name brand embroidered mens shirts ordered by the fancy European buyer.
