Seems management down on the river pulled the plug on a reporter blog Friday. Peggy posted a link to the site sometime Friday morning. When I looked at it I thought, and even said out loud “that’ll be gone by the 5 o’clock news”.
Daralene Jones hasn’t been at 3 long enough I suppose to fully comprehend and understand that management controls everything.
So Jones jumped into the blogosphere without telling anyone or asking for permission. The blog entries weren’t about 3 or giving away information on series pieces or inside workings of the station. She blogged about going to Wal-Mart and buying food and hair care products. She blogged about going to a Grizzlies game and getting popcorn in her hair. Big deal!
But you can’t do things like that there. Go to work. Do the stories they tell you to do and the way they tell you to do them. Wait until the clock on the wall says you’ve worked a full day and then go home until it’s time to come back. And keep your phone and pager charged up. Just in case.
