Jeff Fager Latest Victim of Reptilian Brain

In reptilian brain circles CBS may be known as the Chauvinist Broadcast System as another exec takes a hit
Jeff Fager the executive producer “60 Minutes” is shown the door but CBS on sexual harassment does not admit
CBS among too many women staffers was known as the “Old Boys Club”
Where they were too often exposed to the unwanted grope, Fager arm or sexual rub
CBS probably had no realistic choice
Moonves’ dismissal was feared to give harassed women an emboldened voice
Rather than go down the sexual harassment admission path
A story that Fager violated the rules by a harsh criticism of a report was crafted
The moral of the story to CBS and other organizations that reptilian brains hide
In the forlorn hope that the #MeToo movement will wither and subside
Sugar coat the story and donate to #MeToo charities big bucks
But sooner or later the reptilian brain will be out of luck
As it should always be
The workplace must be sexual harassment free
