Fired over a "tremendous amount of sex"

    Apologies if this is a d_b


    Comcast SportsNet reporter lets it slip that the Hawks had a "tremendous amount of sex." Corrected it to "success" immediately, but got the ax anyway.

    website quotes the Trib:

    Without knowing any other specifics, it seems a little steep.

    She sounds like the perfect person to do a one-on-one with Rebecca Martinson.

    And then maybe interview her afterward.

    You owe it to yourself to watch this video linked by TBL, in which Susannah and a friend read the chapter where Darryl Dawkins discusses his reluctance to perform cunnilingus. The friend is Chocolate Thunder, and dearest Susannah is the woman, in full black voice.

    I haven't watched the videos, so I can't say how bad they are.

    But, my question would be whether or not she was a producer or writer of the material in question.

    Young people trying to break into media or entertainment industries -- and let's be honest, she's as much in the entertainment business as she is in media -- often take questionable jobs.

    Should they be judged based on those jobs?

    Maybe it's questionable judgement, but to me, it's akin to taking a bad movie role.

    I just find it troubling they can retroactively make this move. If you didn't discover this stuff you found distasteful during the hiring process, then it's caveat emptor in my book. In fact, I find it inconceivable they didn't know about this, although old people are pretty terrible at Googling, so maybe that is what happened.

    She'll get another gig, if she wants it.

    The bigger problem is that CSN Chicago already knew about all of that when it hired her. The series was pretty public at the time, and I believe she might have even used it on her resume tape. (Presumably not the Chocolate Thunder one, though.)
