Tips and rumours

Journo sacked for inappropriate behaviour ... Rocco's modern life ... the PC brigade come for Santa (allegedly) ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours … 

Early exit. We’ve all seen the warnings about behaving yourself at the work Christmas party. But Ms Tips hears that a journalist from News Corp in Adelaide might not have heeded that advice, and has been sacked for inappropriate behaviour. At the party on December 8, held for staff from The Advertiser, Sunday Mail and the community Messenger papers, the journalist groped or tried to grope more than a couple of colleagues, as well as some other inappropriate behaviour. After a short HR investigation, they was shown the door. News Corp didn’t respond to Crikey’s requests for confirmation or comment.

    The today show’s version of clickbait

    How low can you go?

    It occurred to me that what is happening to Chris Uhlmann at Channel Nine is a form of hazing, so appropriate to that blokey institution. “Hey, Uhlmann, you might have been some big shot over at the Trotskyite Aboriginal gay whale sheltered workshop, but you’re playing with the big boys now …” The kind of thing he has to do for the Today show is, after all, not unlike being forced to drink your own p*ss while having your junk smeared with boot polish.

    The fate of Uhlman could easily become a weekly feature as he shreds, day by day, any semblance of credibility he may once have, undeservedly, had.
    Hope he enjoys that big pile of money, rooster/feather duster springs to mind though toilet brush might be more appropriate.

      Better still, the wrong end of the pineapple.

    So, another worker sacked for inappropriate behaviour at a work Christmas party. Haven’t these idiots learned not to drink too much at these events? I learned that 40 years ago in my first job. Serves them right. I feel sorry for the co-workers having to endure unwanted advances from a drunk idiot.
