Gee....can you say "publicity stunt"?  I'm sure the station is milking this
for as much as they can...and they were probably in on it from the get go.
Simply notice how far word of their "yanking" traveled so quickly.

My guess is that the station had "operators standing by" to make sure that
all the media was informed.

Haven't we seen this before from this company?  (Mayor is reported
dead....PM drivers suspended....company is so outraged they give them a new
deal in NYC.)

Maybe "Rocko & Birdsey think that this is the kinda thing that'll get them a
NYC gig and a syndication deal....ala Opie/Anthony.

Seems  like a thinly veiled effort.  (And just in time for Phase II of the
Fall Book!)  Sounds like something stations do when they don't have a TV Ad
campaign....they attempt to get the media time for free.
