    It is okay to make it work for them, but not okay for their employees?

    Lovely CYA article, don'tcha think?

    Now, when I start seeing little flags on the lapels of the talent, then I'll stop emailing them [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    He's worried about appearing biased????. Helloooooo. They are an AMERICAN TV station. OF COURSE THEY'RE BIASED. It's when the French, Italian, and British on air talent start wearing American flags that I'd start worrying about BIAS Mr.Dolan.

    What a Richard Cranium!

    Good job! Believing that wearing/ not wearing a flag compromises journalistic integrity??? More proof for the adage about someone being promoted to his/ her level of incompetency. The story was on Yahoo! headlines, but is still available...

    Ok just a reminder to you local Long Islanders. If you are angry at the news station that's fine...PLEASE don't take that anger out on us poor helpless employees. In the past few days I have been called countless names, given countless nasty gestures and such. All because I work for the guy who made those comments. It's not just me who is being assaulted. My fellow coworkers have been spit on, yelled at, run off the road etc...

    WE DIDN'T make the policy...WE DON'T agree with or support the policy. Please stop beating the employees up.

    Supposedly there is a protest tomorrow in front of our building...I'm afraid to go to work.

    How can I ban channel 12 news, if we can't afford cable?

    Jennasis, if things get tough, you can come to my house. I live around the corner from the industial park.

    Jennasis, I'm sorry that people are taking this issue and turning it into personal attacks. What a bizarre twist. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    One gripe I have with the American media (generally speaking of course) is that the presentation of issues tends to cause a reaction that is not objective. Instead of reacting objectively, we frequently react emotionally -- and injure innocent people in the process.

    Most other nations (Canada, Germany, etc.) are able to present news objectively without inciting emotions that overpower reason. News should be dispassionate.
