Saturday, October 06, 2018

A local TV reporter was reportedly fired Friday after he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat while covering President Trump's rally Thursday in Rochester, Minn. Jim Bunner, a multimedia journalist with Minnesota's NBC affiliate KTTC-TV, was seen sporting one of the president's signature red MAGA hats and a red jacket with KTTC's logo, BuzzFeed News reported. Mark Vancleave, a video journalist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, took a picture of Bunner outside the rally at the Mayo Civic Center on Thursday.

Bunner, who joined KTTC in December 2017, was fired from the station the day after the rally, BuzzFeed News reported.

"He violated our policy so he's no longer with us," Noel Sederstrom, news director for KTTC, told the outlet. "We don't allow our people to wear campaign clothing while on assignment."

What an idiot. Did he think rules don't apply to him because he is a white male. What could have given him that idea.

That MAGA hat is nothing. ------------------ has a merkin made from the hair that the dotard ripped from Ivana's scalp.

Probably figured it would be the fastest path to get picked up by "fair and balanced" Fox News.

Actually, it was probably a good idea; trying to blend in and get some juicy quotes.

"Hey, look at me. I'm one of you. When's the Nazi march?"

"We don't allow our people to wear campaign clothing while on assignment."

That just about says it all.

Seems like a straightforward policy.

Firing the guy seems a bit harsh. I guess it depends on how it's stated in their code of conduct manual.

How does one "mumble" when typing.

Would of you prefer he use all caps so you can hear?
