Making idiots of us all

There is a danger, a craftiness, about the internet. Humanity has only been living with it for a short time, compared all of human history. Social media is a particular pitfall few recognize it seems. It’s clear people like Lisa Desjardins don’t see it.

She’s let go from her job with CNN, a media company. For someone involved in media she doesn’t seem to understand the repercussions inherent in reporting news, especially when the news is her own. Making videos like this doesn’t come without consequence. Why would anyone in a hiring position with a company not consider a video like this? One tweet on her account reads “if i evr get laid off i hope i do it the way”. Stupidity will get them nowhere. Upper corporate executives can afford to do things like this, not plebes like this woman. Metaphorically, you shut up, and ride the horse until it dies or the horse is shot out from under you. Then you find another.

Taking pads and pencils from a former employer when packing up to leave for the last time? It doesn’t look good, no matter what the justification. Employers are often concerned about appearances, regardless of the facts, as are news reporters and correspondents.

About elmoshangnaster

The name's a dodge simply because 1) on the internet I can be whomever I choose, and 2) I'm just paranoid enough to keep scoundrels and government out of my business and don't care to sort 'em out from the decent folk. My blog, my opinions. Don't like 'em? Sure, kindly tell me about your far-fetched, idiotic beliefs...kindly. In the end we'll neither of us change the others mind, but I will take the time to read your arguments if they're thought out in a rational fashion and not full of hyperbole. I'm a Christian human being. It's not a flavor or color preference, it's who and what I am. Don't like it? The above considerations apply. I'm not about to waste anyone's time or mine shoving Christianity down their gullet if they demonstrate even the least resistance. When someone's ready to hear I'm only too glad to share. The Gravatar? It's Jenny Lake in the Tetons near Jackson, WY. If God had a house that's where it would be.
