WEYI the butt of Daily Show episode

Post by sinklair » Mon Jan 20, 2020 10:51 pm

It’s never good when the Daily Show takes one of your clips and mocks it for the world to see:

But this is 25-66 after all...

Personally, it's more the fault of the shyster promoter who thought that MLK can wear bling and "twerk".

True, but the GM, Assistant GM and HR Director are known to not have senses of humor about these things.

If anyone from those days were still around, you can rest assured that there would be a @meeting” in the GM’s office!

I agree that it's bad to be mocked on a national television broadcast. But, what should 25 have done differently with that report? Should they have just not reported it at all?

Sin
Sorry. That was a legitimate story. The Daily Show is hilarious, and can take any situation and find a way the exploit it. If I remember correctly, they also used a clip of a 12 reporter drawing a penis in touch screen monitor during a newscast. Now that was funny!
You’ve gone from butthurt to just plain petty in this attempt to criticize your employer.
Hopefully, they will have another company/employee event soon so you can get back to just being butthurt.

Beer: you may want to keep your personal commentaries to yourself.

I never said it wasn’t a legitimate story. I said it wasn’t good to have your stories mocked on a national comedy show.

I don’t think it was a good thing to have 12’s reporter mocked by drawing a “penis” on the telestrator either.

Funny: yes. Good for station morale: not.

You may not like that I criticize my station... then managers should start taking the not-so-subtle hint to start focusing on doing the right thing for your employees. It’s pretty basic actually. Management 101 stuff.

Quite honestly, the more you write, the more full of shit you are.
I’m sorry. I’ll try to keep my personal comments to a minimum.

Instead of personal attacks, you might want to actually address the topic’s premise, Beer.

Wow! Did he say instead of personal attacks? That’s all you’ve been doing since you got here. Go pedal your papers someplace else.

Making observations about ways 25-66 management can improve work conditions and morale isn’t a personal attack... unless you are the station manager with extremely thin skin.

I didnt say you were “full of sh*t”, so stop trying to rewrite history and stay on topic please. We can have differences without resorting to name calling.

But when I see problems at my workplace, I have every right to call it out and advocate for changes... as do you.

I know you want to seem “above it all”, but you’ve personally insulted most of your stations managers many times. Also, saying you’re “full of shit” is not name calling. Calling someone an “accountant from a 3rd rate college” is. You think just because you take a “flowery” approach to insulting someone, it some how makes it OK.

Criticism and insults are protected by free speech!

Love it or leave it, losers! Or don’t! It’s your right!
