Brian Sussman, Talk Radio Blowhard, Fails to Expose Earth Day Idiots

Posted By on Mon, Apr 18, 2011 at 11:20 AM

Tune into KSFO during morning drive time, and you might hear professional angry man Brian Sussman, whose job it is to gather news items he can pretend to get pissed about. These he sprinkles like rose petals to prepare for the arrival of Master Rush Limbaugh, who follows Sussman at 9 a.m.

Anyway, this weekend Sussman tried out this century's communication devices. He went to a local Earth Day festival and shot a video he calls "Earth Day Idiots Exposed" -- probably his second choice after "Librulz Talkz Funny."

Problem is, most of the Earth Day folks who spoke to him seem reasonable; they were nice people who talked about how we could do our part with a little more bus riding and fruit-tree planting.

This is an "exposé" even James

O'Keefe would find deeply lame.

Yes, Sussman did catch some spastic hippie dancing, and one dude who talks about terraforming other planets. But while chatting with Jack Cashill, the bumbling conspiracy theorist who claims Obama's books were actually written by Bill Ayers, on the air this morning, Sussman took seriously some opinions that were seemingly just as crazy.

Still, his video exposed one bit of idiocy. In the comment thread on YouTube, Sussman sympathizers have taken to writing things such as "let wing liberals are such a cancer on our society." (SIC, duh.)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
