I wish I could remember who it was who first told me that any time I thought about writing something or saying something, I should ask myself what was the worst thing that could happen if I wrote that or said that?
That’s advice the now-former CBS network employee who’s the subject of the story below either didn’t get, or ignored…
“(New York, NY) — A CBS executive is without a job after she said she’s “not sympathetic” to victims of the massacre in Las Vegas. The former corporate lawyer, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said on social media that she wasn’t sympathetic to victims because “country music fans often are Republican gun-toters.” In a discussion on Facebook, she also said she had no hope Republicans would take action since they didn’t do anything when children were murdered, referencing the Sandy Hook massacre in Connecticut. CBS said today that Geftman-Gold had violated the company’s standards by expressing unacceptable views.”
While I understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion, I have to think that politics, and our differences in general, need to be put aside and sympathy for our fellow man should take precident in such a tragic situation.
That’s the way I see it.
