The voice of sanity!
There seems to be a blade of straw in all that, Bones. So far, I've seen no one face the pretty news lady and call her names. This is simply a discussion topic. If it's not obvious that demeaning her to her face is totally removed from stating an opinion of her in a discussion then I don't know how to define.
On the other hand, directly addressing fellow members with a little of the same type of snark displayed in the video and shaming them might more accurately fit your context of bad behavior.
I never claimed outright or by association to be above bad behavior as a matter of fact have stated the opposite. Calling someone a POS online for everyone to see is as bad or worse than doing it face to face on video, as a matter of fact it's more cowardly than getting down in the mud with someone who you feel as done you wrong.
Much ado about nothing. It's obviously a slow news day on the TDPRI.
Bones, I'm going to have to disagree right down the line on these angles. Right or wrong, public figures are subject to public opinions. I'll never get the opportunity to address the news lady and tell her to her face that her behavior revealed a very glaring deficiency in her upbringing. That's my opinion and I'm entitled to state it in a forum.
Others may feel that a public person is a POS and would be able to state that in a discussion forum without it being termed "bad behavior". It's an opinion. It may be insulting to the person it's about and it may be the wrong opinion, but it's not being said directly to the person. You may call that cowardly but, again, I disagree.
Beats the hell out of another tonewood discussion...
Accusing the employee or saying that the video was edited would be like a 7-yr-old saying "She started it!" The PR department at ESPN are smarter than that.
Compressed chrysanthemum stalks are the new frontier baby!
Miranda Lambert needs to write a "hey tow truck driver" song.
Look out your window, I had your car towed away.
The pretty news lady started out by saying: "I'll ******* sue this place" and ya know? I'm not so sure this won't happen. I don't know about consent with releasing an edited tape like that but if there's any lost income involved it's not out of the question.
I have as much love for dishonest business owners as I do for mouthy, insulting brats and the law is the law. If she loses her job, then sues and bankrupts the company it would be a perfect world.
Oh, Oh! Am I behaving badly?
My pit bull is chained to my 1975 Ford out in the lawn. He'd bark if there were a problem. I can't look outside right now since it's raining and I've got the trailer house windows covered up with corrugated sheet metal. Nice try...
I think I love her
Good point. Wish I had made it.
Remember that men and women of all races, ages and religions from all over the world read these pages (85,000+ a day).
I mean I hate to be a wet blanket and all but ...

Statement released from towing company
To Whom It May Concern:
Parking enforcement is contentious by nature. At the same time, neither Gina, our lot clerk, nor our company, have any interest in seeing Britt McHenry suspended or terminated as a result of her comments.
Ms. McHenry is our neighbor, and, as she said, to paraphrase, made remarks that were out of line. She is human and errors in judgement can be made in the heat of the moment.
Gina is a single mother of 3 children who works a difficult job to provide her family. Gina holds no ill will toward Ms. McHenry.
As a small regulated business, we saw no benefit to releasing the video, except to highlight personal attacks employees in jobs like towing, public parking enforcement and others sometimes encounter. The video was not licensed or sold to anyone.
Advanced Towing Co.
So the disclaimer "that no one was hurt making this video" applies.
It was good PR. Forgive and embrace their "neighbor" Britt, then accentuate that Gina is a single mom of 3 working a very difficult job (left unsaid; because of having to deal with folks like McHenry all day long).
