“When the cable news networks interview somebody live in their San Francisco studios, they typically use a background picture of the Golden Gate Bridge or the Transamerica Pyramid. Lately, some of them have been giving some love to the Bay Bridge,” George Boardman writes in his weekly column.
“The late columnist Herb Caen came up with one of the best puns ever when he referred to the Bay Bridge as the ‘car-strangled spanner.'”
What George doesn’t seem to realize is that CNBC recently opened a studio at the iconic One Market Street building, with views of the Bay Bridge. It is not a “background picture.” The details are here. LOL.
