well, it is unscientific, after all . . .

There was some sort of brushfire burning close enough to Dodger Stadium right now to put some serious smoke and haze on the field (I’m claiming it’s the reason the Dodgers were trailing the Braves 3-2 at the time.)

I headed over to KCAL’s website to see if there was some BREAKING NEWS@!!!1 but came up empty.

What I found, though, was something that I thought said a thing or two about the KCAL/KCBS audience.

Check it out:

If you can’t make it out, two of the top four slideshows are the Celebrity Sex Tapes and L.A. Erotica Convention . . . but when visitors were asked if the mayor’s affair changed their opinion of him (presumably for the worse) 60% of respondents said “Yes.”

Hmm . . . how’s that hypocrisy treating you, KCBS/KCAL online poll-taking audience?

The correct answer to the poll question, by the way, was “What fucking difference does his private life have to do with me or what kind of mayor he is? Now quit wasting my time and give me some more sexy slideshows, jerks!”

  1. He lied to his wife. He’s betrayed his children by screwing up his marriage. He lied to us about the state of his relationship when he trotted his “family” out on the campaign trail when it suited him, but then pleads for privacy for his family when it goes sour.

    Fidelity goes to the core of character and there’s also a big difference between a one night stand and a chronic philanderer, which we now know the mayor is. Also, he was well aware of the ethical compromise his Telemundo bimbo was making, but that didn’t matter either.

    He’s done. Can you just imagine what the next election’s gonna be like?

  2. With heavy phones, I’m sorry that I didn’t get this blog post up in time for your needs.

    Then again, please remember that the LAFD Labs have several beta projects underway, including:

  3. Brian,

    I think I checked the Internets about two minutes after Vin said there was a fire close to the stadium, and it would be a little unreasonable for anyone to expect detailed information from you in that brief time.

    However, it’s insanely cool that you have an LAFD twitter! Not that it matters, but I love it that you and the LAFD are embracing all these new technologies and using them so frequently.
