This veteran NYC cable channel weatherman was fired over nude photos sent to his boss taken from a nude cam website this guy apparently performed on.

I must saw I do feel sorry for the guy but I have a few questions, like: 

Which web cam site? As my interest in now peaked and I would like to see more.😜

Was someone trying to extort him? He is trying to sue the sender of the photos.

Can he really expect privacy from his boss or others when he has put him self out there.

Is it fair to lose a job for this? I guess so, but seems it might of increased their viewership. 😁

Why is it not fair? Recently two British politicians were forced to resign. One had been seen watching porn in parliament. The other had groped men in the toilet of a major London political club.

It already is, an issue.  In the USA there are employers who ask job applicants for the identity of social media websites they participate in and the screen names they use.  The employers are looking for negative behavior. Then, there are employers who remotely monitor an employee's use of the internet, sites they visit, etc. during the workday.

Right. It is now. But as the dinosaurs die off and the current generation takes charge will they care about this sort of thing? It seems fair enough for employers to monitor their employees on company time. But not on their own time.

Well, it depends how stupid the said employees are. In the US there are a number of jobs that require licenses that are issued by professional boards (Medical, Nursing, Bar, etc.) at the State level. These boards randomly monitor social media profiles of their members and if they see anything suspicious, they will either mark them for personal interview at the time of the license renewal or, depending on the severity, they may suspend their license pending i.e. ethics investigation, or completion of mandatory class, or even rehabilitation. So, if you are performing a surgery in the morning, don’t post your drunk pictures on social media, or better yet, don’t post anything related to Marijuana consumption (edibles, smoking, vaping), albeit legal in that State. Failure of a random drug test will result in employment termination and license suspension, even if you indulged in these substances on your days off.

Over the past few years I have randomly watched Senate Committee Judicial confirmation  hearings live on the Judiciary Committee's website. Yea a bit geeky I guess. It has been very interesting to see some of these now Judges try to backtrack, explain, apologize, and squirm when confronted with their past social media posts. Post that are very partisan, yet they are promising to be non partisan as a Judge. Posts that have criticized some of the very Senators by name that they now sit in front off. Many of these social media posts were made as Law students or when they were defending or commenting on a specific past ruling or judgement. Many of these past posts have been critical of a Supreme Court ruling that as a Judge they now will have to uphold. I have found the groveling and backtracking and sidestepping actually very funny and entertaining. So far I haven't seen any questions about any possible nude pictures. LOL

Could not agree more. Part of me fully understands the appeal of social media to young kids. One of my great nephews even made some soccer vdos for fun on one of the sites. This was bought by Adidas for around €2,500. He was thrilled. But another part of me totally fails to understand the appeal of revealing all, mentally and/or physically, of even just bits about your life to all and sundry. I have never had any interest in facebook, twitter, tik tok and all those other platforms.

Remember Alex Martinez when he came up to St. Augustine......??

Yes of course I remember him visiting while we where there. In response to your earlier post about Ray. Yes I knew about Ray. On my last visit w Ray in St Augustine he was not doing very well. I understand he passed within a year after I last saw him. Miss him, he was the first person from the Old Hooboy site I met.

I am disappointed that this is still an issue. It seems to me that the world has changed a great deal. But, it is hard to break the norms of the past. I wish we would just let people be people and their job is their job instead of what they do outside of their job. It makes no difference to me if someone does after work hours. Totally their business and nothing else. That said, I'd love to see more pics of Anderson Cooper. Big crush for years.

Nice to see you KYTop!

I'm a fan of AC.  Would love to bed him.

Or may bite them back severely. We tend to take too many things for granted, specially younger people.
