Council Member Amy Murray Discovers Fire, Again.
I don't know what book of clichés Council Member Amy Murray dug this media stunt from, but man it is old. Having the story on WVXU is foolish for two reasons. First it is foolish the local NPR affiliate WVXU fell for this stunt. There are surely better news stories in Cincinnati. The second is that the average listener/reader of WVXU is going to trend more educated, and more likely to see this as a hollow stunt. The NPR audience would also be more concerned about how much more her plan would cost. She's a Republican and won't raise taxes, so how many jobs will she cut to make this happen? PayGo, Amy, Paygo. If she gets this story on local TV news, then Suburbanites will eat this up. Too bad they can't vote for her.
