Re: Why does my car-free handyman business scare away news media?
- First off, I think you should get a Presidential Medal of Freedom for running a business like that cars-free.
Second, even keeping in mind what Joseph said, car commercials are probably the last relaible source of revenue for a lot of media. ExxonMobil used to be a pretty reliable source; they spent three years running a picture of cyclohexane in every newspaper in the country. BP had three years of "we serve capuccino so therefore we are green" followed by two years of apologies. But the car money keeps rolling in.

I have also heard rumors that homeland security is protecting the oil companies, and I am wondering if this could be the reason the news is shy of me. I have also heard that people who filmed or promoted the documentary Gasland against oil companies ended up on the terror watch list such as Mark Ruffalo or Josh Fox. My handyman business uses bike and public transit and also uses a 4 wheeled bicycle to carry larger tools.
