KPIX leads, teases Mayor’s presser only to cut to ads when she appears.

Friday’s (June 17) KPIX-TV News at 6 pm leads with Mayor Schaaf’s imminent press conference announcing removal of chief of police after only 2 days on the job. Presser is breathlessly teased almost continuously for the next 55 minutes. Instead of covering the presser, when the Mayor steps to the podium, and before she utters word one, KPIX cuts to comm, ercials and ends its newscast. Anchor Allen Martin says, sheepishly: you can view the Mayor’s press conference on our web site. Shouldn’t he and Veronica apologize to viewers and crew?
