I call BS...

Creative Loafing has published The Green 100, "The 100 people, places and businesses leading the way toward a greener Tampa Bay". Included in this list is local radio personality Cowhead for the following:
"After becoming convinced tbt* was stealing his material, Cowhead asked
listeners to snag copies of the St. Pete Times’ faux alt-weekly and bring
them to his studio. The audience responded, burying the DJ in zippy
newsprint. Cowhead called in mobile paper disposal company Shred It, who
reduced the paper piles to recyclable pulp."

I really like Cowhead, I really like Creative Loafing and I really despise *tbt...but this is bullshit.

I don't think for a minute that Creative Loafing believes that a radio show stunt that just happened to draw negative attention to a publication that Creative Loafing obviously holds in low regard is what they were trying to highlight with this list. Too bad they chose to diminish the efforts of everyone else on the list by including it anyway. Come on, guys. You're supposed to be better than this.

I could eat spinach for a week and take a great big green crap and they'd probably cover it just the same ;)
