CBS fires executive for 'deeply unacceptable' post after Vegas shooting
Los Angeles Times ^ | 2017/10/12 | Stephen Battaglio

Posted on 10/02/2017 1:12:44 PM PDT by Phil V.

CBS Corp. fired a vice president in business affairs Monday for comments she made on social media regarding the mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas. Hayley Geftman-Gold, wrote on her Facebook page that she was not sympathetic to victims of the shooting because, she claimed, most country music fans are Republican. Geftman-Gold also wrote: “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

#75. Of course Hillary being corrupt and fired from the Watergate Committee made her a natural candidate later on to run for the presidency of the United States.

You see, son, you’ve got to have the qualifications of the devil, a skunk and Al Capone to be a Democrat leader. Hillary has them all. That’s my girl, cha-cha-cha!

Isn't it the same tired old MO with these assh*les? "I sent out an inappropriate tweet" "I didn't mean to be hurtful" "I cracked a distasteful joke", "I was taken out of context", my personal favorite " THIS ISN'T WHO I AM!!! Tell your jokes to other folks. This crap is more worn out than "he was just starting to turn his life agound"

[ CBS fires executive for ‘deeply unacceptable’ post after Vegas shooting ]

Wow. For once CBS actually does something I agree with.

I'm still wondering what is different about a "deeply unacceptable" post as opposed to a "merely unacceptable" one.

It's deeply, deeply troubling.

Deeply.

Funny how Liberals think:

Getting killed with a bullet from a gun counts-—

But getting sucked out of a uterus does NOT count.....

I have no sympathy for this ‘woman’. I hope she likes her next job—cleaning rooms in Las Vegas would sound just about right.

For instance, I'm sick and tired of so-called conservatives calling for California to "fall into the sea" or for NYC to get nuked.

Hey! I said Only the upper east side!!!!!!

What the hell does “deeply unacceptable” mean? This doesn’t rise to the level of “vile,” “disgusting,” “revolting,” or anything on this list? http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/vile?s=t

I think it’s pretty obvious what it means. They actually probably all, consciously or subconsciously, agree with her statement. The media is no less leftist than academia, and we’ve already seen what some of the latter have to say. “Deeply unacceptable” is basically “Well, you said something SO BLATANT, we can’t even attempt to cover for you, so you’re gone to try to protect our reputation.”

Deeply troubling means it got far too much publicity; letting the mask slip just a wee bit too much; showing what CBS liberals really think and discuss.

So she had to go. Maybe they’ll rehire her in some other job. Or put her right back like SNL did with its tool

Nah, a few weeks "vacation" until things cool down.

Spot on CORRECT! Either that or rehired in another more obscure position.

I am a deplorable who has to work two jobs to survive. My second job is catering to and serving the one percenters at a beachside enclave. Last weekend they had a wedding event for a girl just like this. Lived on the upper east side financial sector money money money. The one thing I was struck by was the reaction of at least some of the guests to us deplorables. Many of them, mostly the old ones, took time to thank us, be polite and note how hard we were working.I think on some level some of them recognize the trump effect. Hope so.

God bless you.

I know people like that woman too.

They do not realize that their soul has become rotten and twisted. Their self-importance is like an addiction to booze or drugs....they need more and more of it to get the same kick. And it never ends well.

A person's worth is not what they have in the market or in their electronic bank account that is based on thin air.

You my friend, hand in there.

Romans 8:28

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

Like this means a damn thing. Before the press release went out, the front office was on the phone with another network finding her a job. She’ll go on vacation for a couple of months with full pay and quietly surface over there, that’s how these things roll. She didn’t say anything bad, she just had bad timing and wasn’t selective enough with her audience—that’s also how they roll.

CBASS'S handling of this situation, in the words of the Trump haters concerning his reaction to the Charlottesville incident, DOESN'T GO FAR ENOUGH!!!!

I just watch Independence Day, not the sequel, or Day After Tommorrow, for a good fix of that.
