We all know where WBEN Radio’s bread is buttered but shouldn’t SOMEONE over there be embarrassed by this post through the station’s Facebook account this afternoon?
The photo isn’t the problem.
We all know who you are and the role you play, WBEN. When you chose to add this picture to your page, you really had two options.
A) Post a photo of the President kissing a baby and then sit back when (shockingly!) your listeners/readers/followers jump in with full-on racism. This option would give you plausible deniability.
B) Post the photo and then tack on a caption stating that “This one should stir things up.” This option would clarify your intentions, essentially saying “Fire away, racists! We’d love to hear what you have to say and host those words right here under our logo.”
You chose B. Classy.
Are you too lazy to even fake it anymore?
