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.

Leadership....and the lack of it...

I read a LOT of blogs. I just found this one: www.larrybitner.com and was looking at Friday's post...which says:

"Friday Business Builder…

#11. “Stand Tall & Accept Responsibility”

True leaders don’t place blame – they take ownership of problems, deal with them and move on! They acknowledge their mistakes, learn their lessons, look for new opportunities and make sure they don’t happen again.

When you let emotion cloud your view of the issues at hand, you can’t move forward. But once you put emotion aside and find yourself thinking logically the healing will begin and solutions will appear."

I thought - how true and how amazing that so many so-called "leaders" at The Danville Register and Bee and Media General are acting like Losers. No one has "owned" the problem(s) at the company. Their eternally hormone driven employees can do nothing but continue to attack and act like the animals in heat that they are...(Steve - have you ordered the beds for the basement yet? Your revenue is dropping and it seems like the only thing that is consistent at the paper is the manager's sex drive)...

Anyway - imagine how different things might be there if - instead of defending their bad actions, stupid decisions and hormone driven choices if they'd "manned up" and apologized, set things right and acted like leaders?? They wouldn't be famous in ten countries with a blog now approaching 10,000 readers - including Congressmen and national business leaders and competitors all over the world! They wouldn't be the laughing stock of the internet. They might even have gained some respect. But no - stock holders and bloggers are continuing to spread the news of what a pit The Danville Register and Bee is...how bad the manager are and so on. Advertisers are looking at alternatives and those who have suffered the shame, pain and humiliation of being bullied by short, desperate for sex old fat, arrogant and narcissistic balding guys (current and past) are now having the last laugh.
