You can lecture to someone all you what, but in the end, men think with their dicks.  It's just nature. Hell, I ended up dating my dental assistant.  A big no-no. Of course, we've been together 7 years now, so sometimes it works out.

No, the real question is who was tougher, Doris's jealous husband or Willie McCoy ("Slim")?

Has anyone in the press addressed his (very legit) point that the reporter in question should do her own work to source a story instead of relying on "word on the street" information?  They used to call it journalism... I can see how the current media would look down on something like that.

If someone doesn't use their own sourcing, are they really a "reporter"?   Certainly not a journalist.

Well, that's what sourcing is.  You find someone who knows or who purports to know, and you report on what they say.

Journalism has *ALWAYS* worked that way.  The only difference is that before, you couldn't really find out if the story was bullshiat or not because there wasn't a plethora of ways you could check the story out for yourself.  The news media were the gatekeepers of information.  Unless you were a journalist yourself, you didn't have the resources to check up on stuff, and few journalists saw it as their duty to keep the other journalists "honest".

Today, information has been more democratized.  It's a lot easier to figure out when you are being lied to.  I think that Dan Rather didn't really understand the sea change that had happened in the years before he tried to pass off the Killian Documents as authentic.  If it had been 1984 or 1994 instead of 2004, he might have gotten away with it.

But the larger point I'm trying to make here is that journalism has been basically what you are seeing now forever, it's just that the curtain has been pulled aside a little bit and you can now see the man pulling the levers.  That's the only real difference.

He basically said, if you try to look into my past I'll find an excuse to have them fire you; I've done it before.

Which is nice, because that spotlights the paper trail for HR to go back and see if anyone has a wrongful termination suit waiting to happen.

Fager was an executive producer of Sixty Minutes II during the period that it created the Killian Documents fiasco... but was not executive producer of the Killian Documents report -- Jeff Howard was its executive producer.

Years ago my old boss gave us a sexual harassment seminar and he was pulling his holier than thou routine. Six months later he gets fired for sexual harassment.


I remember sexual harassment training. It's a very relaxed environment.  They hired an on site HR person about 10 years ago and they made us all do training.  One of the sessions went something like this.

HR lady: You guys need to start watching your language. Some people might be offended and some language could be considered sexual harassment.

Manager: What if the only woman i the room is the worst offender?

HR lady: (shocked and sort of offend look)  Come now that's not going to happen.  Take this seriously.

Only female in training:  No really. I have got the biggest farking mouth in the office. (sans Fark filter)

That pretty much derailed training, our onsite hr person found another job with 6 months and was never replaced. This is a sexual harassment free zone.  No one does anything that might require them to hire another onsite HR person and no one has to worry about HR saying anything about moderately rude and offensive language.

It sounds like the official story is that he was not fired for harassment, rather his "warning" text to the reporter violated company policy.

Basically his warning came across as a thinly veiled threat, which is a form of harassment in itself. It sounds like he just saved CBS the hassle of trying to navigate the sexual harassment allegations against him.

I think the world view and mindset of someone who behaves this way was established long before they got to college.  Lack of immediate and painful consequences is what allows it to continue.
