This card isn't bad if you start thinking about how you can manipulate the runner instead of what it gives you.
If you put this out, the runner is probably going to run it three turns from now (or sooner). Put it behind a protected/trapped remote and take advantage of that! Reveal a new, expensive threat and make them pick between the two!
Make sure you can follow up on the threat, though. Nothing is worse than having 8 credits with nothing to spend them on. Also, if you're already rich, the runner isn't going to care.
Granted, if you're NBN and want to force a run, just use Daily Business Show. And if you're Weyland, you can use, I dunno, Capital Investors or something nastier? And Jinteki has Sundew...and HB has Adonis Campaign...
Okay. Yeah. This card isn't great. Many better things will force a run. But not many put the runner on a clock that builds over time; all of the examples I mentioned stay at the same threat level or decrease in threat with time.
