We haven’t seen much lately from Chronicle‘s Froot Loop Bureau, which once featured writers who seemingly watched the morning TV news with their breakfast and then posted accounts of their TV watching to Chron.com.
It seems that the Froot Loop Bureau has now adopted somewhat of a different tactic when it comes to letting the TV guys do the initial work for them: Just fire off public information requests asking for all the stuff previously requested by the TV guys.
Even nicer is the declaration that the correspondent is “a journalist” and that any questions about the request should be communicated via email or phone. Because that’s more timely, after all.
That Froot Loop Bureau doesn’t miss any tricks!
