The station has no sense of humor. Rehire the couple NOW!
Unfortunately, most people use the company they are working for..time and equipment for personal uses. Some people who work in machine shops take home tools from work to fix things at their home...and do at times bring them back...some like to think of it as the company owes them..b/c the paycheck is just not enough. I am sure we are all guilty of using different items that do not belong to us from our workplace. Yes...what they did was unprofessional and they shouldn't have wasted the company's time and equipment. It was time and money of which they have wasted and stolen from the station. There is always a better and legal way of doing something..like purchasing your own video cam! I hope they all learned their lesson and if they are fortunate enough to land another job..they will be better employees to that job.
LOL! I guess 'intelligence' really is relative.
Nonnie22, thanks for your comments and support. Apparently, Shannon did not pick up on the fact that the people involved in this project were HIRED TO COVER NEWS STORIES.....NOT TO CREATE VIDEO PROJECTS! If they want to write for TV or film, they should have moved to Hollywood and NOT to Arkansas! Perhaps they would then have the opportunity to meet their biggest fan, SHANNON, in LA-LA Land! ;o))
1stcontact....so you took the news and media out of your life, right? what do you call reading stories like this on aol? this is a media form you fool
Think about it? Did it really hurt anyone to use the stations stuff to make those two videos. It didnt cost the station any fricking time or money. Whats the big deal....i think they she start a cable show with their charaters, It really wasnt bad.
We will probably hear from the creative ones (fired) again. e.g. Letterman? As for their boss? Are you familiar with the peter principle in business? Idea is, you will be promoted to the level of your incompatence.
These people risked (and lost) their jobs to make some low quality, unfunny crap like those two videos? They're stuck on stupid in my opinion.
who cares..i bet it was half decent...hope they do well
