article imageWABC anchor snoozes and loses his job

By RobotGod     Mar 14, 2007 in World
The anchor, who has messed up several times on the job only to get another shot, was fired after sleeping through a newsbreak he was to anchor last Thursday morning on the horrific Bronx house fire. He was in his Ch. 7 office at the time.
He was a major part of the top rated news program. Joe Trres took his place yesterday and they will be rotated other people in the spot. This was not his first incident. In November, he was suspended for several days for showing up at work 20 minutes after the morning news began. A year before that, Bartelstein was gone for two weeks, after once again showing up late for work and missing a newsbreak so that he could meet Samuel L. Jackson, who was appearing on "Live With Regis & Kelly." There was also a sexual harrasment suit that was withdrawn at some point. They gave him another contract despite all of that, but were very clear on what would happen if he screwed up again.
Sounds like a born loser. How many chances does one guy deserve. He had a sweet job and the pay I'm sure was good. Some people just have to blow it no matter what. The better things are the more they seem to slack. Too bad.
You snooze you lose..
