  • ABC Punishes Producer

    Posted by Ginny on April 3rd, 2006 (All posts by )

    All whistleblowers are not altruistic. “It is widely believed at ABC News that the e-mails were leaked by a former employee who has a vendetta against Green.” The ABC producer has apologized to the White House (which made him puke) and Madeleine Albright (who has “Jew shame” and besides, well, he didn’t like her). Nonetheless, he’s given a month without pay to think it over.

    On the other hand, I’d prefer the transparency of free & open speech. I suspect we might more easily talk out problems & reach solutions if the bullshit factor were a bit lower.

      “bullsh1t factor”
      Your midwesternness rears its head in a very apropos and interesting way. ;)

      And the CIA leaks, which of course ABC had no problem spending endless hours upon, were not leaked by former [or soon to be former] employees who had a political vendetta against Bush?
      There’s something about the Golden Rule in that idea someplace.
