So most of them don't deserve press coverage
This may explain why we haven't heard from Paula Fox, Assistant to the Executive Producer, lately
I think this whole “my workplace must be racist because Jenny was mean to me once”
Is a sign of progress. This is what’s left. Petty uninteresting disputes raised to the level of heresy because there isn’t enough heresy left to fulfill people’s rage boners. So they go looking for the tiniest blemish.
I’ve often said. Modern society is like a sheet that is bleach white and perfectly clean. (Which it is compared to, you know, all of history). When a sheet is that clean every tiny speck will stand out. This is people freaking out over tiny specks.
Jeff your writing is always good but every once in awhile you really knock it out of the park. This is one of those times.
Looks like there was a lot of racism experienced by some people who worked on the show.
Your post makes me want to rant about the improper use of the word "litigated" in contexts like this (and in political debates, too). Litigation does have those due process factors but most importantly, it has an END. There's a decision, a resolution to the issue and it is over at that point. Res judicata, stare decisis, law of the case doctrine and all that.
There is just no END to political complaints and there shouldn't be! Trump claims his tax return issue was "litigated" in 2016 and therefore it's unfair to criticize him for not releasing those returns today. But he's wrong, it wasn't litigated at all! It's totally fair to beat him up over that. Same for every political issue - people disagree about things and there is often just no resolution to any of it. And complaining about your employer is a time honored tradition. Doing it to a reporter on or off the record doesn't "litigate" the case against them; trying a case in the press is just a figure of speech.
