I don't pay much attention to TV and entertainment news, but I found myself kind of fascinated by this train wreck.
I was amazed at the stakes, how many hundreds of millions of dollars were on the line, based on small changes in the perceived likability of certain talking heads.
But I was even more amazed by how juvenile, thin-skinned, and emotionally-immature people making 10 million + salaries could be. One woman, who had a reputation as a serious journalist (at least until she took a job on a morning show) breaks down into tears and goes into a year-long depression because she lost her job -- and was effectively given a $12 million severance, a figure well north of my lifetime cumulative income. Jeez, who in this day and age has not lost a job, likely with no more to show for it than a box of their personal items and a security escort to the door? Reading this thing I just wanted to keep shouting "grow the f*ck up!"
