How to succeed in corporate America.
From the NY Post (Gutter) comes more ravishing details in how to succeed in David Letterman‘s world:
A female former staff writer for David Letterman said the comedian’s late-night operation was a hostile, sexually charged, male-dominated bastion where women didn’t climb the ladder unless they climbed into bed.
We of course wonder what this infers for the liberated woman who is all gung ho and willing to succeed in corporate America. Have times really changed when a woman is relentlessly considered a sexual peon for the likes for their bosses to trade sexual favors for career advancement? Or is this just a matter of how to succeed in the world of CBS?
Continues the report-
Nearly 20 years before Letterman admitted he slept with female staffers, he ran an enterprise rife with rumors about his affairs with subordinates, and looked the other way when other high-level men were sleeping with the staff, Nell Scovell writes in Vanity Fair.
Scovell said that in 1990 she landed what she thought was her dream job, a writing gig on Letterman’s show, then on NBC.
But after only a few months, she quit.
“I’d seen enough to know that I was not going to thrive professionally in that workplace,” she recalled.
Yummy stuff or just a bitter bitch looking to get back at Dave?
In any event it’s good to know that Dave is always willing to help a budding female career’s writer if… uhm certain conditions are met.
The moral of the story- it’s a man’s world. Or to be exact it’s David Letterman’s world…
