15 minutes

Well's been fun. 

Still haven't decided if this is a dream or a nightmare. I've always wanted to tell the news, not be it. 

I want to make one major clarification. I'm not even going to address the nonsense that's been floating around but I will address one huge misnomer. I was never asked to take the blog down. I was fired without discussion. I took the blog down immediately following my termination, then reposted it Friday evening. There was no defiance or petulance. If I could go back and do it over, I would have never written the post. My job was worth 100 times more than any of this media circus. 

Finally, in regards to said media circus, I'm done. I spent 48 hours in the fray, got my points across, but now it's time to focus on my future and rebuilding my life. No Dr. Phil. No Geraldo. No Piers Morgan.

Meanwhile, thanks for the support. To the haters, I respect your right to hate. I will continue to not filter the comments, good or bad. 

What's next you ask? Well, that's the million dollar question isn't it.

Feel the beat.

It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song. 
You can't believe it, you were always singing along. 
It was so easy and the words so sweet. 
You can't remember, you try to feel the beat. 

You've spent all of your life trying not to fall behind. 
You're using your headphones to drown out your mind. 
It was so easy and the words so sweet. 
You can't remember, you try to move your feet. 

Someone's deciding whether you stay or go. 
He opens the window to make you feel the chill. 
You feel like an orphan, tossed and then betrayed. 
You can't remember, you try to feel the beat.

No Apologies: Confessions of a red headed reporter

This post was taken down because I was momentarily misguided about who I am and what I stand for. To clarify, I make no apologies for the following re-post. It's funny, satirical and will likely offend some of the more conservative folks. But it isn't fake and its a genuine look into my slightly twisted psyche. 

Here's the thing, I've vowed to always fight for the right of free expression. It's allowed, no matter what the profession. I pride myself in having earned the respect of many because I make no apologies for the truth and hold nothing back. I don't fight for things because they serve me, I fight for them because they are right. Sources trust me because I am an unadulterated version of the truth. I won't ever bend just because its popular to do so and I'm not bending now. 

This is my voice. Hope it makes you laugh. 

1. I've gone bra-less during a live broadcast and no one was the wiser. 

2. My best sources are the ones who secretly have a crush on me. 

3. I am better live when I have no script and no idea what I'm talking about. 

4. I've mastered the ability to contort my body into a position that makes me appear much skinner in front of the camera than I actually am. 

5. I hate the right side of my face. 

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

7. Happy, fluffy, rainbow stories about good things make me depressed. 

8. I've taken naps in the news car. 

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

10. I've stolen mail and then put it back. (maybe)
