ChannelCincinnati.com responds to yesterday's news story that was a little, shall we say, offensive to the reporter.
A Message from WLWT's General Manager
POSTED: 6:44 pm EDT July 20, 2004
On Monday, July 19, language was added to a news story on channelcincinnati.com that was offensive and hurtful toward one of our staff members and was an egregious violation of the standards of this news organization. As soon as the posting was discovered it was immediately removed from channelcincinnati.com and a company-wide effort was mounted to remove all references to the story from Web search engines.
This posting was the result of one individual's actions and that individual has been terminated.
We regret the trouble this has caused for the individual named and our entire staff and we apologize to viewers of channelcincinnati.com.
President & General Manager
