And it would have been covered with the same breathless infotainment TV horseshit as this was, which I can’t even. You know, it’s one thing to cover something like this in case a riot breaks out. It’s another to take this utter confusion of brand loyalties with values, and treat it like a member of a governing body doing something, or a natural disaster, or even a real human interest story.
This is a fake fucking joke dreamed up by various PR-minded tools, and instead of saying no, we don’t want to provide free advertising to both a chicken restaurant and a political party, everybody falls all over themselves to GET ON THE STORY!!1!
