Have Some Class

2/9/2009   Comment on This

It's all over the news that Warner Saunders, the top anchor at Channel 5 news, went off on Robert Feder, the former TV and radio critic at the Chicago Sun-Times, last week at an event. Mr. Feder was an invited guest to the event and got ambushed by Mr. Saunders. This troubled me when I heard it because Mr. Saunders aired his dirty laundry in public to humiliate Mr. Feder.

Where is the class of a top anchorman? He is retiring in May, so he obviously felt he had nothing to lose even if he got fired. He blasted Mr. Feder in front of one hundred people or more. I'm sure he had some valid points, but to yell and scream in front of people and make racial undertones, all is lost in your delivery.

That being said, Saunders made it a race issue. He brought in the likes of David Duke, who is associated with the Nazi party. Come on, Warner, can't you just get upset and tell the guy off without pulling the race card? Your reputation goes down the drain in no time with that kind of behavior.

He also should've pulled Feder aside and done this privately. Man to man. Mano E Mano. No matter how much you are tempted if you are wronged, believe me, it is true that it's not what you say, it's how you say it. And you can add "where" to that statement as well.

If you have a problem with someone, then take them off to the side with no witnesses and tell them how you feel. This way, it's your word against theirs and it's the classy thing to do, especially if you're going to pull the race card.

So what do you think about it? Let me know.
