With a scored Improved Tracers (new 3/1 agenda coming out soon in Data and Destiny), this ice becomes a 4 STR, 4 sub sentry with base trace strengths of 2, 3, and 4. That's a monster of an ice for 5 credits, especially in NBN: Making News. Just make sure you have an Exposé or Witness Tampering nearby to deal with the bad pub.

(Old Hollywood era)
What about a Broadcast Square & ChiLo City grid? Giving 7 tags with 1 ICE :) —
On the other hand, if Sunny (also data and destiny) becomes popular, it's likley a blank card at best and a waste of credits and clicks for the corm at worst. —
