Reporter Fired For Personal Blog Post

A reporter for the Huntsville, Alabama ABC affiliate, Shea Allen, was fired after she put up a confessions post on her personal blog.

1. I've gone bra-less during a live broadcast and no one was the wiser. 

2. My best sources are the ones who secretly have a crush on me. 

3. I am better live when I have no script and no idea what I'm talking about. 

4. I've mastered the ability to contort my body into a position that makes me appear much skinner in front of the camera than I actually am. 

5. I hate the right side of my face. 

6. I'm frightened of old people and I refuse to do stories involving them or the places they reside. 

7. Happy, fluffy, rainbow stories about good things make me depressed. 

8. I've taken naps in the news car. 

9. If you ramble and I deem you unnecessary for my story, I'll stop recording but let you think otherwise. 

10. I've stolen mail and then put it back. (maybe) 

The original post was only up for a few hours before Shea was asked to take it down. She complied... for a while. Eventually, she put it back up with a note about transparancy and freedom of speech. It seems her bosses weren't really into that, because they gave her the boot.

Other than the mail thing (that's a felony, right??), they aren't so bad! Did she deserve to get fired? Comments are open.
