Sick of P/C in the Media

10/30/2009   Comment on This

I just read that Josh Mora who works for Comcast is not going to get his contract renewed after it expires in February. The reason is a bunch of P/C crap.

“We have decided not to renew his contract. It was an internal decision,” Comcast says.

That’s a bunch of crap. The fact of the matter is: Josh wrote a blog about Dale Tallon who was the Hawks GM until he got canned. He only took them to the Western Conference finals last year. I didn't read the blog but it seems that Josh gave his opinion that the firing was bull. The Blackhawks apparently didn't like this opinion and bye-bye Josh. I think Josh broke the story as well.

Josh MoraJosh is part of the media and the Blackhawks should have a thicker skin. I love the Hawks and hockey but Tallon did get screwed - plain and simple. This has nothing to do with Stan Bowman the new GM whose daddy, by the way, is Scotty Bowman who won several Stanley Cups and is a senior advisor to the Hawks.

Now the media is being censored? A few years back Steve Stone who is the best analyst in baseball ruffled Dusty Baker and he also went bye-bye along with Chip Caray. When are these stations going to stand up and grow some stones? The Hawks SUCKED for years. Now that they have a couple of good seasons they put a guy out on the street? They canned Denis Savard a few games into the season last year. No loyalty. It did work out for them but loyalty is a thing of the past. If you don't say the right thing you’re gone.

How sickening is that?

That’s why P/C to me is just a form of a lie. You don't dare tell the truth or you’re out. Even if it’s in a blog or when you’re on the beat, managers and bosses only want to hear what they want to hear. The next time you’re in a meeting, take my advice. Have the attitude: “yes sir, yes sir three bags full.” Tell them what they want to hear and get the hell out of there. In today's environment it’s all about CYA (cover your ass).

What a shame.

We teach our kids not to lie and then we are the biggest hypocrites and lie all day long to keep our jobs. Get smart - get out and find something you love and pursue it. These corporations are robbing us of our souls.
