So Whoppie Goldberg got spanked for saying the Holocaust was not about race or some other antisemitic sentiments and she is hopping mad. But what is interesting is the revelation (accidental or otherwise) that there is a set of rules and steps to follow and understood by the insiders on what to do
if when you screw up:
Goldberg, 66, feels “humiliated” at being disciplined by ABC execs after she followed their advice to apologize for the ill-conceived comments, a well-placed insider told The Post.
“She feels ABC executives mishandled this. She followed their playbook. She went on ‘The Late Show With Steven Colbert’ and then apologized again on ‘The View’ the next day,” a source said.
“She followed their playbook.” Ain’t that something? ‘Just do A and the B and then C and you are off the hook, clean slate and back to be the voice of (insert group here)‘ A fake act of contrition without real feelings of being sorry for what you did and all is well in the Holy Church of Media.
But I guess somebody actually had to pull the reins in because of the suspension given. My guess is that a heavy Ad buyer must have been truly upset and demanded correction. And as much ast hey profess to love Whoppie, she is only adored as long as she can bring income to the network and never a detriment to the bottom line. I would not be surprised if part of her anger is the realization that her ass can be fired just as is she was a meth-addled janitor in accounting.
