Netscape/CNN site calls Bush an asshole - employee fired


"It was an image produced by an employee of another company," CNN spokesman Matt Furman told WorldNetDaily. "We didn't know anything about it and had nothing to do with it.

"Most importantly, it was never on CNN.com. It's our picture, but it never appeared on our site."

CNN has fingered a Netscape employee as the culprit, and Netscape agrees.

"As soon as the situation was discovered, it was immediately corrected, and the employee has been terminated," said a Netscape spokesman. "CNN had nothing to do with the images, the terms, or the postings. We apologize to CNN and to anyone else offended in this matter."

8. not hacking
when you already have write access to the files as a part of your job it's not really 'hacking'

13. yeah...
If they've modified the code to push results one way or the other, it's hacking.

If they are changing the values in an unprotected spreadsheet (and it seems this is case with the Diebold systems), it's not hacking.

It's fraud.

11. WTF? That's against the Bush employment doctrine....
As many times as the freaks in the Bush misAdministration have FUCKED UP, from Rumshelld to Condasleeza Rice, they weren't fired.

So in this case, this dude "fucked up" SOOOOO bad, give him what he deserves....A DOUBLE RAISE AND DOUBLE PROMOTION!

:bounce:

15. Maybe he should have said "asnoagulerjo" which was "asshole" in Spanish
Edited on Tue Nov-09-04 03:23 AM by Valerie5555
and no one would have suspected what he said unless anyone else there could read it.


On edit LOL I wondered what would happen if everyone spammed Bush's e mail with "You're an ASSHOLE" e mails.
