SF Chronicle Takes Readers Calls and Turns Them into Comedy Gold

phone call.jpg

The San Francisco Chronicle has turned the tables on irate readers who call the paper and rant–the calls are pod-cast on the website.

The feature, called Correct Me If I’m Wrong, starts off with a message from Phil Bronstein introducing a call from a wannabe editor who’s a stickler for accuracy and has an obsession with pilotless airplanes, aka drones. Drones. Drones. Drones, you idiot.

FBLA foresees Bay Area pranksters turning the feature into a sort of “open mike night” on the Chron’s dime.
