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.

Here it is again in case you missed it.....

It's not enough for The Register and Bee to videotape women's breasts and demean women. Now they're running adult ads on their website! Todays Register and Bee shows an ad of a "Bad Kitty Adult" costume with a woman in skimpy clothing and a leather whip. Also advertised, a "Bunny French Maid" adult costume. Maybe we ought to call The Register and Bee the Raunchy and Baudy??

This is a Terry Jamerson's answer to increasing revenue? A "serious management decision" regarding the new direction of Register and Bee ads. Has she ever really spent any time in Danville? And school children have access to this??

Click on the ad below to see a larger version. Yup. What do you expect from the paper who brought you a front page story on alcohol with a reporter's assessment being he thought the drink was hopefully, "A real panty dropper." Your ad dollars HARD at work ladies and gentlemen!!

You'd think the Virginia Press Association would be embarrassed! I would. Unless they maybe condone this behavior? Or they're afraid of Media General...a large source of income....sad, sad, sad.....
