standing in the way of control

I have written something that I feel strongly about and I have a nasty feeling it may end up costing me my job. The people I wrote in support of love me; the people I wrote about are extremely pissed off. I can and will back up every single word but unfortunately for me the pissed off people are the ones who hold the paystrings. Isn't that just typical? We shall see. I can't really say much more right now, other than it is something I felt could not remain unmentioned. I do not have the support of my editor this time. The moral high ground is proving to be a rather lonely place.

Sounds like a tough situation to be in, but well done for having the courage of your convictions.

Hope it doesn't work out as badly for you as you imply though :(

Good luck hun! And well done to you for standing up for your beliefs.

You can always find another job, but you can't take back writing something you don't believe in.

Your my hero of the day...

Be strong and believe :-)

congratulations for having the courage. whatever happens, you know your integrity is intact and that's the main thing. and who knows what good might come out of this (i know it's so easy to dwell on the negatives).

sending you love and support (now that i can ;))

A friend of mine once said, 'if you are going to do something that isn't kosher, then you should also be prepared for getting caught.' They're all pissed cause they got caught. I say 'Fuck them all'! Don't worry...and if you lose your job, just find another, it's not like you haven't done your fair share of this job sux, maybe it's time? SFxxx

It sounds hectic, but GOOD FOR YOU for being open and not afraid to have an opinion.

Well done for being brave.
Stand your ground.

PS> Have no idea if that's relevant as we don't know what it is, but I hope it helps
