There is no comparison with what Letterman did. People have relationships with co-workers all the time. It’s where you meet people. Kimmel is not married and can do whatever the hell he pleases. It diminishes what Letterman did to lump him in that category. Which is, of course, what the press wants to happen.
But if he was her boss he held power over her, much like the teacher who sleeps with the adult student. Co-workers are one thing, but a boss and a subordinate are another.
Co-workers, yes. Employees one has jurisdiction over regarding their position (er, ah, job status) and salary, no.
This just goes to show what a cess-pool Hollywood is. They don't even care about appearances anymore.
The BS going around was that Letterman wasn't Married at the time, so it was OK. Nothing like Liberal Moral Equivalency to make things right. /S...
I was a Regional VP at a fortune 500 Corporation. If I did what any of these guys did, I would have been fired. Not only do you put the Company in a Legal and Financial bind, you are personally and financially liable as well.
It’s been beaten into my head at all the PC places I’ve worked that even co-worker dating is frowned upon. Sure, it happens, but I’m one of those rules-following saps.
He needs ratings. He saw Letterman get press, so he pulled a “Me Too!” to get some print.
