Tribune: Marc Chase Pres./Interactive ... A Nation Mourns
April 7, 2008 at 3:01 PM (PT)
In an announcement that could have serious consequences to the state of WALL STREET -- even to those who didn't realize WALL STREET was a state, let alone visited its capital -- TRIBUNE BROADCASTING has named MARC CHASE President of Tribune Interactive. The official release, with the headline "Surely You Can't Be Serious?", left some observers confused. After all, no one called MARC CHASE "Surely."
Nevertheless and alwaysthemore, the release blames CHASE's hiring thusly: "TRIBUNE BROADCASTING’s RANDY MICHAELS’ past finally caught up with him when MARC CHASE obviously blackmailed his way into a position he is not remotely qualified to hold. Insiders are irate. CHASE is a fraud. A source inside Tribune HR, who wished to remain anonymous, pointed out that MARC CHASE’s resume was obviously fabricated. First of all, his name isn't even MARC CHASE--it’s MARK THOMPSON. The whole thing is a sham."
Indeed, CHASE's resume speaks for itself -- or at least it would if it had vocal cords. CHASE has been accredited to being a "Vocabulary Advisorist for GEORGE W. BUSH," so obviously he has experience working with the handicapped, which means he should fit right in with MICHAELS.
Other prominent gigs was at eBAY, where he was President of Buying Crap; and GOOGLE, where was EVP of Finding Crap Anywhere. He spent time at all the major TV networks where he was VP of Watching TV A Lot, and last but certainly least, he spent far too long at HARVARD UNIVERSITY, where he was Dean of School of Internetology.
On top of his "Educashon," CHASE also boasts plenty of community service to his credit -- "400 Hours (reduced from 600) [when the] Judge gave him time off for good behavior."
Said CHASE: "Timing and infrared photography are everything. I couldn't be happier! I know RANDY is relieved to finally have me on SAM’s payroll."
