gja: Hope they never expect to use that job as a reference:
tira: At the risk of identifiable information, as someone who came dangerously close to working at that station..."we both felt there was a lack of knowledge from ownership and upper management in running a newsroom"Is the biggest understatement of the year, you people have no idea.
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: When I worked for a small Northern California newspaper one of our reporters wrote a story revealing that one of our major advertiser's (a regional grocery chain) produce and meat scales were consistently cheating customers as verified by the county's Bureau of Weights and Measures.Our publisher refused to print it. The reporter resigned that day, and the story appeared the next day in our competitor's paper under her byline, with the addendum that our paper refused to print it. She's been with that newspaper for 25 years now, and she's all class.
Bendal: A local and popular DJ in the Raleigh market had the format of his station changed by the new management. He put up with playing country and western for a while (he was a classic rock DJ before), but eventually couldn't stand it any longer.He put on "Take this Job and Shove It", left the studio and locked the door behind him, and walked out. It was about five minutes before anyone noticed he wasn't in there any more and get the door open...
lenfromak: Christ on a cracker. The unskippable ad before the segment was as long as the segment itself.
simplicimus: Sybarite: Sounds like they were mad as hell and not going to take this anymore.That film was prophetic. All we need now are network psychics.
Walker: Screw you guys....we're going home.
