Burnsys said:... i can imagine that NBC has a hierarchical order, what i think is that NBC10 director or top manager is apointed by someone of more range in the New york office, who is acountable for everything that appen in NBC10, of course they are going to "Promote" to higher ranks to those who share the main editorial line. and this is about the critical subjects, like war, economi, elections.. the rest is random fill with unimportant news...
I don't think you need to be from the US to know that corporations have written and unwritten rules that employees need to follow, unless they want to be serving cheeseburgers for a living. Except with the benefit of hindsight, the maverick isn't usually very popular with colleagues. Lets face it, most people would rather just pay the bills than do the right thing, and anyone who challenges the status quo is a threat to all of that. Sometimes the maverick becomes the hero, but this is usually in hindsight. People who challenge beliefs are usually considered a pain in the ass, whether they are right or wrong.
