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.

Advertisers get "stung" by The Sting

Advertisers - you work hard for the money you pay to have your products advertised in the Danville Register and Bee and The Sting. Were you aware that many of those papers are never even distributed! They're tossed into the recycle bins because NO ONE IS READING THEM which means no one is reading your ad either. They don't even get the change to! Don't take my word for it...drive by the dumpsters and recycle bins yourself.

The photos below are from Wednesday August 27,2008 issues .......500 more Danville Register & Bee Stings were spotted in a big green recycle box belonging to the City of Danville at one of the recycle sites around town....with Foodlion color insert and ad for Hobby Lobby on the back page and ad for Roanoke eye doctor -Dr. David L. Armstrong...Will someone please call and let advertisers know they're wasting their money?

Notice the ad in The Sting - where I've circled it in red. It reads, "Don't Get Stung by the BeeSTING by not advertising your businesses in Danville's weekly publication. Dedicated to keeping local citizens safe and informed. Huh? It appears these advertisers DID GET STUNG ....when all these copies end up going into the recycle bin without ever being distributed or read!!!
