Loo Class Warfare



Had to decompress from this weekend's deeply disturbing politics...

CNN Anchor Gets $100K Private Toilet As Company Slashes Jobs

Suppose you're doing a live four hour news show that starts at 6 am ET and you only have a 2 1/2 minute bathroom break in which to run down the hall and travel to a different floor to reach the nearest restroom. I think you'd want something closer, too.

I know this doesn't surprise you one bit. It's been happening for decades it's just now we're finding out these things.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

She asked about having a closer toilet, she didn't demand they build something fancy just for her. At least, if i read the article correctly. Still, i think they could build it for less, but i don't know their building or the codes.

I'm liking this story a lot. Especially about the CNN staffers losing their jobs.

I never watch CNN but someone in authority must think she is worth the money and the others may not be.

Sandee: You're right. It's as old as the hills. The difference now is that there are fewer & fewer ways to keep things under wraps.

Messymimi: That's the way I read it, too. It's a bathroom for her and her staff. Why it's going to cost so much may have more to do with union business than Robin being a diva.

Kid: HLN is CNN's sister network, not exactly the same thing.

Jan: I never watch CNN either. HLN is a sister network and Robin Meade is the big fish in that small pond.

We all need to skip to the loo on occasion. At least they don't need a third bathroom for the gender-confused like they do over at MSNBC.

DaBlade: Skip to my loo... heh heh. Love it. Yes, Rachel Madcow would have a cow if she sniffed any kind of non-diversity drenched treatment involving her elimination room. I can see her demanding that it must be just so.

Turns out Meade asked about a unisex bathroom that she and her staff could share that was closer to their studio. Not an outlandish demand. Sounds like a hit piece to me.

Cube, I've seen HLN several times and find it kind of Ok.

Does that mean you're a Robin Meade groupie?

I don't know who Robin Meade is.

She's the morning HLN anchor. You'LL either love her or hate her.
