What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

13 citations....John Coscia, former Sports Editor

They were GOOD friends, Editor Arnold Hendrix and Sports Editor John Coscia. REALLY GOOD FRIENDS. Such good friends that even after all these citations John managed to hold onto his job as sports editor. It's NOT ....apparently, against company policy to evade police, have multiple DUI charges and so on - read the charges yourself or go here to look up the information yourself. Make sure you search on inactive cases and enter last name first and first name last.

But dare to be a female and complain about a reporter's sexual harassment and a hostile workplace and BAM! Publisher Steve Kaylor will fire you immediately. And when MG FINALLY did fire John finally, you wonder WHY IT TOOK SO LONG? I do. So do most of the people working at The Danville Register and Bee. Another one of those confusing Media General Policies I guess. Steve? Any input here?
