Posted on 08/15/2007 11:07:03 AM PDT by nickcarraway
FORMER staffers of Green Stone Media, the defunct women's radio network, are grumbling that its founders aren't living up to their feminist creds. Women's libbers Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda are "putting their own reputations above their female employees' finances," one source told Page Six. The recently shuttered station is "refusing to pay severance, and the founders won't file for bankruptcy protection because it would publicly embarrass Jane and Gloria." A spokesperson for Fonda told us, "This is pure speculation. There is no foundation to the accusations and the staff has been informed throughout."

Who woulda thought it possible?
Those evil conservatives who are joined at the hip with the Wall Street financiers with the single minded goal of screwing their employees...
Yet another reason to impose the fairness doctrine (s)
It’s like a group of ladies splitting up the bill for lunch at a restaurant!
“Let’s see, ummmm, you had the salad with ice tea, no wait, that was Shirley, YOU had the low carb salad ...”
In this case:
“Let’s see, ummmm, you got the debts from talent fees and failed promotions, no wait, that was you Gloria, YOU had the low power “earth friendly” transmitter and tower ...”
Ideology stops at the bank door...........
Hows’ come they didn’t get government funding, huh?
I’m sure the Demmycrats could’ve found someway to finance the NOW-type people (National Organization of Wenche$).
But as Elmer Fudd (or Barbara Wawwa) would say, “I feel tewwiboo, tewwiboo!”
This bunch must have set a record for the shortest lived radio venture in history. About as soon as I heard about this new venture, it was off the air. Air America has been a rip-roaring, long standing success by comparison.
“The recently shuttered station is “refusing to pay severance, and the founders won’t file for bankruptcy protection because it would publicly embarrass Jane and Gloria...”
At least we have documentation of this attitude with Jane Fonda. When asked if she shared any responsibility for the millions who died as a result of the US pullout from the Vietnam war, a pullout she worked very hard to achieve, Fonda told the interviewer that it was not her concern.
Clearly, by the way the Left is now agitating to destroy talk radio by restoring the Fairness Doctrine, the left thinks that the failure of their several networks is not their fault, not because the public did not flock to their message, but because of other factors beyond their control.
The best way for a command-and-control elite to address such factors is just to pass a law and substitute the decrees of a pliable bureaucracy for free people making up their own minds in a free market.
Now these same Beautiful People, who in a different venue would be hammering stingy conservatives about how the poor are “oppressed” by the rich, find these same government institutions very handy at frustrating the people who worked for them from collecting on the promises that were made during the startup of the failed network.
Rove, You Magnificent B*STARD
Heck, they couldn't even come up with something controversial enough to get them a gig on O'Reilly. If they did, they sure didn't make it known.
What happened? They found out that to broadcast, they need electricity?
So, to go the completely "green" and do their part for "Mother Gaia", they decided to turn off the transmitter?
Incredible willful denial there. Of course if she ever admitted it, it would destroy her.
She was taking lessons from the Hilderbeast but hadn’t gone past chapter 1 - If you tell something (a lie) enough, these saps will start believing it.
How much should we bet the women are being stongarmed to NOT sue for back wages? (don’t sue ssssssisster! its for the cause!)
Of course the question whether their state requires serverance pay or if there are contracts that mandate it.
Another lib radio station bites the dust. TOO FUNNY!
