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.

The first ever apology

Many in the industry are touting it as the first ever apology by a corporation. Maybe there's hope. Not for the media....but for others. He never quite comes out and says, "We're sorry," but it's a step forward.

Meanwhile, The Register and Bee and Media General continues to flounder without direction, leadership or an apology to anyone. They don't have to. They are "the paper."

Sue Davis has, I understand, offered to sponsor publisher Steve Kaylor as a Rotary member. Good luck Danville. I'm sure he'll bring the same stellular principles of honesty and integrity that he has displayed with his employees to the Rotary. It's a conflict of interest and journalistically unethical for him to belong....but like I said....the same standard of integrity with which he commands his currently sinking ship...will be brought to Rotary.
