That's probably one of the reasons you're not a FOX executive.
If Stephens fight and then gets convicted, the guy who laughed in the faces of the people who brought the concern to his attention while there was still time to do something about it--and didn't--is going to be looking for a job.
You'd essentially be gambling with the reputation of the network. If Stephens goes on to be utterly vindicated in his case, what has the network gained? But if he gets convicted, what has the network risked?
I have the impression that Fox wants executives who can execute fundamental risk/reward scenarios.
This is a case where the obvious bias of the source doesn't change the fact that the information is solid.
Again, I don't see why it's great when dana uses leverage to get what he wants, but it's totally shady when anyone else does it.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
