  • Professionalism In Action

    Thanks to Tim Blair, we now know that the good people running the Netscape CNN site have a remarkably expressive file naming system.

    As a commentator on Blair’s site says, “winners can laugh … losers are losers”.

    (Just in case they fix the file in question, here’s a screenshot)


    As I’m sure everyone’s already seen on Instapundit, CNN and Netscape have announced that the offending filename was created by a junior Netscape (not CNN) employee responsible for posting files (which is what I figured). This person has apparently been fired.

      They did change the name to “georgelaura.”

    2. Paul Bixby Says:

      That’s just as classy as brainwashedchild.jpg (at the Houston Chronicle)

      By the way, here’s a great live-blog of the CNN coverage from Tuesday night. What liberal bias?

      right on.
