Huntsville reporter Shea Allen fired from WAAY-31 for blogging about working braless...
ALL ALABAMA ^ | 7/29/13 | Paul Gattis

Posted on 07/30/2013 6:14:52 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

A reporter at a Huntsville television station has been fired for what she said was a humorous look at her job on her personal blog.

Shea Allen, a special investigations reporter at WAAY-TV Channel 31, told The Huntsville Times/al.com today that the blog post - in which, among other things, she claimed to have "gone bra-less" during on-air appearances - has drawn national attention.

As an arbiter of work place disputes, I need to be there when she works braless and physically check this out. I, ahem, work many jobs for free.

I can understand her bosses not being happy with her napping on company time but I think firing her was probably a little extreme.

Does not rise to the level of the Youngstown, Ohio anchorette who took a Florida vacation, got rip-snorting drunk, entered a wet t-shirt contest which had her eventually stripping down to her panties, which ended up in one of those Girls Gone Wild videos.

She was also fired. Yet today she works in Cleveland, a much larger market. I suspect that is what awaits Miss Allen as well.

And her claims:

Doesn't seem to match that claim of:

"I do not want to be a joke," Allen said.

I suspect she will be part of a lot of jokes from this point.

From her blog:

I’m frightened of old people and I refuse to do stories involving them or the places they reside.

and

If you ramble and I deem you unnecessary for my story, I’ll stop recording but let you think otherwise.

probably got her into trouble as much as anything else. As a reporter, she needs to understand that she has a 24/7 job. In the same way that teachers really never are out of the spotlight, the public has certain expectations of reporters. Fair? Maybe not, but that’s the rules of the game, and if you want to play, you stick to them.

IMO that list is more damaging than whether she may or may not have worn a bra.

Indicates a severe lack of mental and emotional stability.

And a need to share that mess with others. Not someone interested in having a business wants to keep on staff.

Some one should keep that list and show it to her in 40~50 years.

Second thread I’ve read this morning that touches on a woman’s breasts.

May we hope for more on this lovely topic?

“I believe that as a journalist, I should be a watchdog. I should be a protector of people’s rights. I never got into this to be the pretty girl on TV. I got into this because...I felt like I was making a difference...I fight for people’s rights to have freedom of expression. That’s supposed to be what a journalist does. “

Another Crusader Rabbit Journalist. A cute one, but it wouldn’t be prudent to believe anything she says on TV.

The emphasis on boobs NOT currently holding elective office in Washington, D.C. much appreciated!

Maybe. Though I read it like "I'm important! No really! I am! Listen to meeee!". Figure that someone who works in front of a camera for a living has got to have at least a touch of narcissism.

So she slept on the job, exposed her station to embarrassing “nip slips” and (deliberately) set up potential “wardrobe malfunctions” on camera, stole mail (from others at work?), and manipulated her interviews to make HER look good and demean the people she was taping/recording .....

Then wrote it all down in public.

And the station doesn’t have the right to fire her?

Maybe...I was thinking the same...

But also thinking that personal internet blogs and drawing attention to oneself is never a good idea. Sooner or later airing all your laundry in public will bite you. The younger generation does not grasp that.

I suspect she stole mail from those she was waiting to interview, but otherwise I agree. She is very cute (rare for liberals) but not at all a nice woman. I imagine her boss was grateful to have so public an excuse.

I don’t think her going bra-less had anything to do with getting fired. Admitting to stealing mail would be a key issue though.

Is it just my eye sight or does her neckline seem strange in the left of the picture. Just the way she posed during shots or a new fashion expression? She is at least covering her arms with sleeves...unlike some we often see.

Indeed. (Somebody has to post this - apologies to MP's Sir Galahad)
DINGO: Oh, wicked, bad, naughty, evil Zoot! Oh, she is a naughty person, and she must pay the penalty -- and here in Castle Anthrax, we have but one punishment for setting alight the grail-shaped beacon. You must tie her down on a bed and spank her!
GIRLS: A spanking! A spanking!
DINGO: You must spank her well. And after you have spanked her, you may deal with her as you like. And then, spank me.
VARIOUS GIRLS: And spank me! And me! And me!
DINGO: Yes, yes, you must give us all a good spanking!
GIRLS: A spanking! A spanking!

Prudence suggest that I should stop here.

Technical speaking she didn't have “nip slips”(exposure of the areola) but rather the term "pokies"(Said nipples pressing through blouse, sweater, etc.)

Nothing personal, just keeping in line with FP protocol(wink)(wink)

Nobody said they didn’t have the Right, the question is WHY? The other networks are lying, making up news and outright instigating crap, so she wrote something on Tweeter, Twitter or Face F—k and has nice boobs. Why fire her?

“Pokies” (not unrelated to “perkies”)

Also known as “nippin’ out” & known to occur whenever it’s nippy.

When they hanged Tojo as a war criminal, someone observed “There’s a little nip in the air this morning”.

Our gal looks a little horny in that pic.
