Hilarious SPIN by Yahoo “News”
THIS headline is up on Yahoo “News” as I type this:
George Lucas proposes building affordable housing on property
Ahhh…that is so sweeeet! And it IS sweeeet, sweet REVENGE!
The first paragraph of the article stays in spin mode, giving Lucas HUGE props for doing this! [cue violin music]. Paragraphs 2 and 3 hint at the some “issues” around Lucas’ attempts for 25 YEARS to build something else on his own property…but then in paragraph 4 (which most folks don’t ever get to) they can’t avoid telling the REAL story:
“And now it seems Lucas has finally given up on his studio development dreams. But he’s proposed a seemingly brilliant form of revenge for his politically correct neighbors: If he can’t have his studio, Lucas wants to install affordable housing instead.”
Yup…the neighbors who opposed him developing his OWN property for DECADES, and now going to be “treated” to low-income housing built right in the middle of fabulously weathly Progressive Marin County!
They didn’t want “noise from construction“…and now they get The Projects! Of course, the Progressives will now get to fight AGAINST low-income housing…because it will now [gasp!] impact THEM!
Despite Yahoo trying to make it sound like a Hallmark movie script…this is really the revenge of the Jedi!
