Jenny Dell has been transferred elsewhere. The reason is obvious. After the Red Sox reporter’s affair with Will Middlebrooks although she was not fired, she was reassigned on duty somewhere else. But even this is a little excessive.
While anyone else would have been sacked, Jenny Dell who reports on the Red Sox was merely put to work in another spot. She was seen in photographs with Will Middlebrooks, a player. And it was the player who revealed the slightly intimate pictures.
But the fact is that the decision taken by NESN is a little harsh. Though Dell was employed as a reporter, she was already interviewing the players of the Red Sox in a very frank and free manner. So what if she carried out a harmless affair with one of the team players. This thing happens in today’s high stress society where love and intimacy both play such an important part.
Jenny Dell is a very famous figure in reporting. Her position is coveted by many for its perks and popular fringe benefits. Yet the transferring of this female shows society’s sexism at its worst. She was not working in such a capacity that such a political level of accountability was to be expected from her.
It only reflects the moral high ground that some bosses like to occupy. They are only capable of destroying relationships by imposing their dated concepts of authority on others. At least that is what appears to be the case when you take a closer look at the benign photos. They don’t portray anything vulgar.
