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.

What has become of Steve Kaylor?

A reader asks - "What has become of Steve Kaylor?" Don't know....other than he is now running the advertising department since Rob's departure for greener grass. He obviously isn't controlling his people - since all the staff reported not to publisher Steve Kaylor, but to Managing Editor Joe Stinnett in Lynchburg. Steve must be a lame duck - on his way out - if someone else is determining who works for the Register & Bee and who doesn't. That - IN THE PAST - was his job. Now he's an ad flunkie.

The woman over him...is over Joe....Terry Jamerson. Hmmmm...... whipped for sure now.

So, the DANVILLE paper is now operating out of Lynchburg. Layout, editing, design, ads, obituaries.....ALL out of Lynchburg. Do you really think a Danville, let alone a Reidsville paper, can really do justice to a LOCAL newspaper from Lynchburg?

The new assistant editor - Charles Wilborn has - what? NO reporting experience...and spends most of his time squealing and sending reporters to go to gang and drug shootings and car wrecks. Sorry Charles - that's not news. It sells newspapers - but it's not NEWS. People want to know what city council is doing, what's happening in the schools, what business is coming to Danville - what business is leaving.

I understand there is a lot of Mormon/LDS recruiting going on that staffers aren't happy with - but that no one will complain about.

How long can an office with so many problems and the only real power management in Lynchburg survive? We're about to find out.
