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.

OLD photos in new pages...guess we weren't so bad
Wow. Keep scrolling!!
The photographers the Register & Bee management fired or forced out are still considered "Top Notch" by the Danville Register & Bee Advertising Department.
With no one there able to take any new or good photos, staffers are relying on old photos or even "stock" photography of scenes that aren't real! Yeah! They're using CLIP ART for news photos!!! lol!!! The great convergence...any local high school could do better.... This is from the Thursday paper...the dancers and sunflowers are Richard Davis' photos and the sunset is Julian Henderson's. It's a photo they used on a cover a couple of years ago. Months later after we are gone and they still use our photos....The action football photos in recent preview were old Richard and Julian photos.......surely they can come up with their own with all the experts they have.
On Sunday August 31,three out of four photos on the front page of the 'Discover the Dan River Region' were Richard Davis' photos. Hmmmm...Didn't Publisher Steve Kaylor tell the Rotary club about the paper's great new plan for equipping every reporter with a camera? Too bad those camera's aren't working. Editor Arnold Hendrix keeps them locked up - insists they work while all the reporters sneak their own onto assignments since the official cameras don't work and the paper can't afford ones that do. Sad huh. But Steve will still get his bonus. If he had a heart maybe he could figure out a way to get the bathrooms open for the carriers. And you all wonder why your newspapers are late? Folks have to run home to pee...they'll be fired if they're caught peeing in the parking lot. That's okay. We have an amateur photographer waiting to get a photo of the puddles and the poop so we can post them here....thanks guy!!! No ....you don't have to be in the picture.
