No, it does not require a car, just turn on the TV and they'll take you to both schools, linking the cases even though they are in no way linked!
It's called "linkage," discussed in the book, and it is a technique the media use to discuss stories by connecting them to other stories even though they are not connected. Think school shooting. One happens. Connect it to Columbine, even though it is in no way connected. Then connect it to Virginia Tech, even though it is not connected.
In this case (an alleged sexual molestation case involving an assistant basketball coach at Syracuse), i is being connected to the Penn State case (which involved an assistant football coach). See the connection? So, clearly, we have a major problem/epidemic of assistant coaches who are perverts (allegedly of course).
Now the media will start looking to find it at all schools. Just watch.
It's already happening at Fox. Check it out:
- Syracuse places assistant basketball coach on leave after allegations he molested a ball boy for years
See the last story? Now it is in high schools, too! So it must be everywhere!
