1. It's a risky career move

But I'm glad that at least one journalist is refusing to be Sinclair's puppet. Other folks who aren't quite so brave could read the Sinclair propaganda in a flat monotone, signing off with "I am making this statement of my own free will and not because my job has been threatened by the station's owners." *Wink!*

2. Back in the day when military were held hostage and had

to read statements, it was obvious they were being forced to read statements. I so totally wish these journalists would stare into the camera and speak in a monotone making it clear they were/are being held hostage.

3. No offense to the first two posters, but I suspect that monotone approach would be just as risky

These people will be watched to make sure they are appropriately enthusiastic

4. Oh I don't take offense. I strongly believe it would

be risky but being fired for doing what you are told is equally risky for management as most of these people will have contracts and I doubt the contracts contain language about being "enthusiastic". That would be highly unheard of in journalistic circles. That would be an immediate red flag.

5. Very good point. But I think the scenario would not be an immediate firing, just a "reassignment" to

....covering bingo games. On the other hand, for that kind of money I would cover bingo games while job searching.

Regardless, I appreciate her and you and the rest of us.

6. Pretty soon the bots will tell her to go back to Korea

She is a courageous and talented woman.
