And it is.
Cliff Mass, however, got the memo, but not the message. Remember him from a few news cycles ago? He's the public radio weather babe fired because he wouldn't shut up about other topics in his 5-minute weekend weather report.
He's still trying to climb back into the news hole by complaining that KUOW is spreading 'misinformation' about him. As recently as Tuesday, he was still begging KUOW to reinstate him on his blog, and trying to stoke the fires he built on his Facebook pages. His fans say they'll be some 'action' (picketing something?) on Monday afternoon. They're talking about approaching KUOW underwriters. Nothing, in the end, will transpire.
(If we could just have a moment to speak with Cliff... just leave us alone for a minute...'kay?
Cliff: It's over, baby. You were last week. Now it's this week and besides, the real world of radio doesn't have tenure. After your original screw-up, you said angry things about Steve- that precludes you ever going on the station again. KUOW doesn't like angry things. Did you think they'd fire Scher and re-hire you??? Of course not. Besides, Jeff the Program Director backs up Steve; Guy, the News Director backs up Jeff; the Board backs up everybody. Don't think about moving the Board... you think climate change is slow-moving? It's a tornado compared to the KUOW Board. And, of course, they DO NOT LIKE to mess with the station's day-to-day. They gladly leave all that up to the same trusted folks who have each other's backs on the canning of you. You said you had other offers on teevee and radio?... take 'em! Although, gotta say it- your post-employment sour grapes might not look all that great on a broadcast resume. Buddy, you were toast from day one; now, please, know you are toast, quitcherbitchin' and get on with your life. Don't sound like a kvetsher. You're better than that.
