    Yes i believe they did the right thing. She knew the station had a policy of not responding to viewer complaints, and she did it anyway.

      I agree with you. When a person accepts a position they accept the policy and the consequences that come from breaking that policy should they choose to do so.

    Something I'd be interested to know: What is WGNO's policy with their employees? Have you ever had a problem with a reporter responding to a viewer's comments?
