CASEAfter covering everything from the courthouse to city hall to localschools, Mae Tyler, the 28-year-old, 6-year veteran of the news-room took the 5 p.m. (solo anchor) and 6 p.m. (co-anchor) slots amonth ago. Her promotion came after the station laid off severalpeople, including Bob Herbert, beloved across the city and notorious in the newsroom for dragging his feet in joining The Digital Age (he refused to blog or Tweet). Mae says she is happy, butCharles Gaines, the news director and her immediate boss, thinkshe sees symptoms of the opposite. She used to smile a lot, but latelyshe’s been all business. She’s been avoiding her former buddies/correspondents and doesn’t even look her fellow anchors in the eye.She even tried to convince Charles that her salary (about$75,000) was too high—arguing that making the same salary asco-anchor Mark Vigar, older and more experienced, wasn’t fair toMark. Charles practically had to beg her to take the pay raise, argu-ing it would worry the other anchors that their pay might be cut.The 5 p.m. ratings were down 15% from the last ratings periodwhen she was promoted, but Charles believes the show’s marketshare (second only by a half share) will increase because Mae willpull a younger demographic and more men overall.He wants to understand. Mae has been a rising star since shejoined the staff. She was the first female to win major reportingawards at the station; when she finally got promoted to anchor, sta-tion General Manager Anthony Llorens touted it as “a long time incoming” and said she was a role model for the other females at thestation and across the city.Mae prides herself on being a good wife and mother as well asa professional, although she has secretly struggled to find balance The promotion, for some strange reason, has made her feel simultaneously guilty (for Herbert losing his job) and pressured becausehe always made a point of saying that “Anyone who’s also doingdigitally is likely doing diddly overall.” She used to enjoy blogging,but now she wonders if she should cut back.Lately Mae’s attitude, like a yawn, has been contagious. Threeyounger colleagues, fresh from college and cheap replacements forthe three laid-off correspondents, seem to be imitating her. All threehave concentrated on their broadcast work at the expense of apply-ing their online expertise, partly for which they were hired. Maehas focused particularly on coverage issues such as story anglesand source selection as it pertains to gender and race. Mae thinksCharles is sexist and, perhaps, unintentionally racistMae is the only Asian American on the staff. There have beenother Asian American staffers in Charles’s 10-year tenure as newsdirector, but all left for more money elsewhere. Mae feels as if sheis being singled out for her race. Charles has made a point of tell-ing everyone how great she’s performed, particularly in the last 6months, as if to say, “Hey! How about our model minority, huhguys? Wish they all were like her!” Yet Mae feels Charles also issexist, primarily because, when she started to change her hair-style, Charles told her he did not like it. She has seen how he treatsMark (they joke around a lot) and how differently he criticizes theanchors: He is direct and blunt with her and almost apologeticwith Mark. He also usually comments about her looks. He tells her,“That’s a nice dress,” every few days. Last week during the budgetmeeting, he rambled for 5 minutes about anchor makeup with heras the focus. Still, he usually ignores her ideas for news featuresabout schools and health, usually asking “for some hard numbers”before he’ll consider them.Mae asked Charles for a meeting. She wants to challenge herevaluation and find out whether Charles has a problem with womenand Asian Americans and stories about them. She thinks the problem extends to his handling of the layoffs, too. In preparation forthe following questions, review the chapter guidelines.
