Ouster...

Over at Greater Kailash, it seems that the habit of dipping wicks has taken another victim. This time a rather high-profile one. After years when people never complained it seems that one person, goaded on by other influential people in the organisation went up to the bosses to complain. Sex it seems is becoming the last stop before people go down the road to perdition.
Not that sex hasn't happened before or won't happen again. The stories we all know about several people are gory at times but other times just plain sad. Of course, if you ask around you'll now hear stories about how how the latest sexual predators in media organisations are not men, but the fairer sex.
The stories, the stories...

Viva la liberacion! Who says women in high positions wouldn't be on a power trip all their own?

Is sexually predatory behaviour that much more common in media houses, or we just get to hear more about it?

By the way, if you remember, almost 90 per cent of the anonymous comments on WFN used to about this gentleman's sexual proclivities. He must have stumbled big to have been asked to quit.

Hello? The post barely makes it known who is the person in news (come out of NDTV-mode, blogger, and please let the laymn too know who is dropping wicks and what rewards did he get for the same). Too bad WFN is dead.

The way I heard it, he gave terrible appraisals to most of the crew there, excluding certain of them to whom he was close.

As it happened, that was the last straw.

The boss screws around with some of the women, fine. He gives them preferential treatment, fine.

But appraisals! That went too far for those not giving favours and so out of favour.

There was going to be an insurrection in the ranks before this guy got pink-slipped.

And thalassa_mikra, IMHO, you're right.

Sexually predatory behaviour is more common in media houses. Right up there with airlines. Call centres might come a close second though.

But being the stupid, gossipy, chatty, gabby lot that journalists are, we also get to hear more about it.

Actually we usually get to hear all about it.
