Pilotless drone!

Posted By on Mon, Feb 5, 2007 at 10:24 AM

I was listening to North Country public radio this morning on my way into work and heard a story about this clever new initiative at the San Francisco Chronicle. Apparently they've got a new podcast, consisting of voicemail rants left by their readers. It's called Correct Me If I'm Wrong.

The snippet from one episode that they played on the radio was from a guy complaining about the Chron's use of the term "pilotless drone." "Is there any other kind of drone, other than a pilotless drone?" asks the passionate caller. The guy gets more and more enraged as the call goes on. It's really funny.

The best part is that somebody has made a YouTube remix of the podcast, which the Chron also links to on its site. So smart! I'm including it here below because it makes me laugh.
