Career Advice for Media Professionals

Posted on | October 9, 2010 | 8 Comments

From time to time, as a public service, I like to share insights that may be helpful to media professionals.

For example, no matter how many Emmy awards you win as an investigative TV reporter, there are still a few phrases that can harm your career.

One such phrase is “digitally penetrating a 4-year-old girl.”

Hope this advice has been helpful.

    I’m down with a nice public execution, if the charges can be proven.

    Having noted that, I’ll note that charges are not convictions, and it wouldn’t be the first time…..

    I don’t put much of anything past anyone, actually. But I would need some serious evidence before I convicted him, were I on the Jury in this case.

    We’ve had too many cases already where the real victims were the people accused. If it’s true, get a rope. But prove it first.

    I have childred, and grandchildren. And if I had evidence of that sort of behavior toward any of them, at four years old? They’ll be trying me for manslaughter, at best.

    But I want evidence first. They can charge anyone with most anything, most days. Is he a pervert, or has he stepped on someone’s toes?

    As noted, I’ll bring my own rope if he’s guilty. But the whole story seems a bit thin at this point. I want to see something substantive here.
