30 Nov 2006 Stealing: Not OK — Even at Work
We’re equal opportunity critics here at the National Center. I critique MSNBC; husband David provides similarly constructive advice to Fox.
To that end, I reproduce a letter David sent today to John Gibson, host of The Big Story on the Fox News Channel:
John,Your story criticizing YouTube for carrying videos with instruction on how to pick locks was a bit hypocritical given that you had another story providing tips on how to take a “not really sick day.” There isn’t much of a difference, is there?
YouTube is providing information that can be used by people to take property that doesn’t belong to them. Your sick day tips can be used by people to take time — and, yes, compensation — that doesn’t belong to them.
