Today we have a National Press Club “Communicator” who wants to get his views across on the suspension of Sam Husseini, but insisted on anonymity to safeguard his club membership. We’re letting him air his grievances without fear. So much for feeling like freedom of speech is really an option.
“Hope that you can report on the outcome of this action. As a Press Club member myself, I am very interested in how this turns out. I suspect Husseini has hit upon some of the key reasons the Club continues to lose members and prestige. Many weeknights, the place is nearly empty, and those members sitting around the bar bitch and bitch about how bad things have become. Even some of the staff are critical. It’s sad, very sad. (PLEASE, this is between us. I’d be suspended myself, probably permanently, for criticizing.)”
Have something you want to get off your chest but don’t want to foolishly get yourself fired? Write us at FishbowlDC@mediabistro or Betsy@mediabistro.com. We’ll protect your anonymity and let you rant.
