Yesterday was May 1st – which Seattle celebrates with its annual Anarchists’ Parade and Media Rodeo.
All the time I was driving the news remote trucks, they were proudly emblazoned with the KING 5 logos and graphics. Then, a few years back, the microwave vans reverted to plain white (as if we expected no one to realize what they were?) – a blank canvas, one might say. Yesterday, some marchers took the opportunity to “re-brand” our station – though I don’t believe this is the official Gannett logo. I will venture to guess, though, that it is much easier and less expensive to remove tags from a plain white surface than from one layered with complex decals.
