Court TV to ‘Out’ Turkeys
November 9, 2006 5:43 PM
The annual pre-Thanksgiving Food Drive is not going well at Court TV, according to a widely distributed e-mail from an employee who now threatens to “out” the names of the colleagues who work on various floors who have made no contributions if donations don’t pick up before the November 19th deadline.
The 19th floor, where most of the drones work, so far as the best track record, contributing 23 items, including some nice cans of Progresso soup. But shame, shame on the 4th floor where the net’s top executives reside: So far a grand total of six items have been donated to the drive from the executive wings. And triple shame to the 3rd floor, occupied by the net’s on-air talent, where there’s not a single contribution in the food drop, save for one paper napkin.
True, there are 70 fewer people working at the net since Liberty Media sold its 50 percent stake in Court to Time Warner last May. Guess the hundreds who are left are so busy polishing their resumes and going off to job interviews elsewhere, that they don’t have time to schlep a can of soup to the office. Tsk, tsk, says Ms. Waggle Finger.
