Re: “KARK: Spoof video not a laughing matter

VERY true statement Northstar! I know of 2 others who were fired over very small easily explained mistakes that could've been worked out. Corporate doesn't view their employees as people but as working drones.

Re: “KARK: Spoof video not a laughing matter

Several of the comments posted here are dead on. These videos were indeed practice short films for the 48 hr film festival that will be held here in Little Rock in early August. As someone who personally knows the folks involved, these videos were not meant to be derogatory in any way toward KARK which is why they took the time to make sure nothing reflecting the station's name appeared in the videos. The videos should have never been put on youtube, however, especially without the consent of those involved. But on the same token, don't record anything you wouldn't want folks to see, in my opinion. Videos have been submitted in the past few years to the film festival by KARK employees using Ch 4 equipment without the prior knowledge of management and no fuss was ever made. But they also weren't filled with profanity. I don't disagree with the firing of a couple of the folks, but I know for a fact that if one of them had walked down a different hallway on the way to dinner the words, "Hey! Come here a second and help me with a short scene in this video. We're practicing for the 48 hr film festival" would've never been heard. Hindsight is 20/20.
