KNEW/SF's Katz Appoints Listeners To "Blue Ribbon Commission"

The controversy over a videotape made by SAN FRANCISCO police for a captain's retirement caused Mayor GAVIN NEWSOM to form a "blue ribbon commission" to investigate and possibly press charges against the officers responsible. That led CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KNEW-A/SAN FRANCISCO midday host JEFF KATZ to form his own "JEFF KATZ BLUE RIBBON COMMISSION," consisting of the public, thousands of whom will be given blue ribbbons to wear and place on their cars to signify support for the SFPD.
KATZ, who hasn't hesitated to jump in on local controversies since joining KNEW, has appointed himself "Presiding Judge of the High Court of Rough Justice."
