Journalism Bunkified

Biker survives after being hit by SUV - News

It seems to me that the writer of this article was a big plugger as far as brand names went. Rather than saying laptop, it was definitely a Mac, rather than a coffee shop, it was Espresso Roma, and rather than a vehicle, it was a GMC Yukon. Aside from the Yukon, they were positive ads in place for what could have been generic items. It makes me wonder if this writer has sponsors from Mac, Espresso Roma, and Ford.

If I start plugging brands I wonder if I could get sponsorship. I wonder this as I use my Logitech keyboard and mouse, on Microsoft Windows. Sure would like a Corvette, which of course is made by GMC.

That's enough. Journalism is bunk.
