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.

Taxi to the dark side - Good reporters make a difference, Media General does not

Good reporters use video and their time and talents to make a difference in the world, making documentary videos like this one (Taxi to the Dark Side) - not worrying, like the Discovery Channel did (shame on Discovery...) about their reputation. HBO stood up for human rights.

Media General reporter Mac McLean used his access to video to humiliate women. How is he any different than the men and women who humiliated prisoners? When does humiliation become okay? Apparently for Media General the tipping point is about money - not about human dignity.
