Charlie Rose gets canned, nobody at CMG bats an eyelid

Post by living_stradivarius » Tue Nov 21, 2017 12:44 pm

2017 will be remembered for two things:
1. Stock Market Megarally
2. Everyone famous turns out to be a serial groper

What a weird message.

1. "Charlie Rose gets canned, nobody at CMG bats an eyelid." So what? As for me, frankly I don't give a damn about Charlie Rose and am not sorry he's off the air for whatever reason.

2. "Everyone famous turns out to be a serial groper." Name one famous woman who has turned out that way.

2017 will be remembered for two things:

1. "That's just Charlie being Charlie."

2. "Women are very special," said Trump, "I think it's a very special time, a lot of things are coming out, and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very very good for women and I'm very happy."

Very apt. And the second from a man who boasted of groping, even though it was only "locker room talk". Women will be so pleased that he is happy.

And now Garrison Keillor! The headline doesn’t specify the genderof the accuser but I bet it’s actually a guy.

Now that did get me to "bat an eyelid." From what I've read on the Web, it looks like Minnesota Public Radio panicked and acted prematurely on an unverified allegation. After all that's been going on recently, maybe their action is understandable, but that doesn't make it right.

Living_Stradivarius: from what Keillor has said about the incident, you lose your bet.
