We’re completely dumbfounded how this continues to happen at a company which is run by a woman who regularly champions her female employees — but then turns a blind eye to this sort of disgusting behavior.
The latest incident happened on last Saturday’s The New Screensavers. TechTV employee #1 (and major creeper) Russ Pitts skyped in to plug his new e-book Eagle Semen. The title must have sent Leo Laporte’s mind into a perverted spit-swallow frenzy because he proceeded to dish out more improper sexual innuendo at Megan Morrone.
Even Leo Laporte’s chief sycophant and Tech Guy chatroom braintrustMike_B was quick to speak out saying “Leo: People record these and put them on bad web sites”. Amazing… Mike_B chose not to admonish the behavior but instead to warn him. This guy deserves cancer.
Part of me wants to remain sympathetic to Megan Morrone. But why this woman has not consulted with an employment lawyer or simply found another job is baffling. There is literally an employment lawyer within a 3-minute walk from the shoebox studios. I hate to be the one that says this but maybe the mortgage has nothing to do with this… Megan Morrone secretly wants this to continue.
Can you imagine them having to Google that to see what it is?
Can you imagine Marco listening to the constant sexual advances and harassment of his non-racist, non-monkey wife?
Do Megan and Marco object? Nope. They just bought a new house in Petaluma. They are just as complicit as Lisa Laporte.
We no longer have any sympathy for Megan.
“Shipmate” put it best in the comments on the last article (emphasis mine).
“You’d think someone like Leo would cool it with the sexist remarks considering the current atmosphere, but he apparently has few fucks left to give. Twit’s going down the toilet, his renewal with iHeart is in peril, and his vacation budget is exceeding Trump’s. So why not take the harassing remarks to another level as well? Megan is more desperate than ever and he knows he could have her held down and take a dump on her face and she still wouldn’t leave, so it’s almost inevitable that something like this would happen.”
You will be forgiven for not knowing what #TWiTSwitch is. Tech News Today co-hosts Megan Morrone — non-racist, non-monkey — and Jason Howell — kind of, sort of, whatever — came up with the grand plan.
Jason would wipe his Google Pixel phone and give it to Megan to use for a month, and Megan would leave all of her past-due library book notices on her iPhone and give it to Jason to use for a month. Each would report back with an opposite perspective they gained by using the other’s platform.
Megan Morrone now claims to be an iOS “guru”; in reality, she just assumed Sarah Lane’s identity when the tech goddess departed the ailing network’s premises. Megan Morrone spent the prior decade pretending to work for Microsoft — actually freelance writing part of one terrible article for them — while using Android.
Megan Morrone had never used an iPhone before assuming Sarah Lane’s identity. She wasn’t even good at pretending to be Sarah, killing iFive for the iPhone in the process with her terrible personality compared to the angelic Lane.
It was with great satisfaction that we finally heard someone at TWiT call her out on this fraud she perpetrates weekly, if not daily. Thank you, Bryan Burnett. Finally, you are something other than the foil for the fake priest.
Thanks to an anon from #drama for the video.
