Whether it’s working in the media or hanging out around the office, people will always talk and gossip about what’s going on with other people. Co-workers, business contacts, friends, those you’ve never even met, we’ve all been there and heard the whispers. Here is where most people get themselves in trouble and often can damage their image permanently. It’s one thing to talk about someone’s hair style, what they’re wearing or how they do business, but the second you hit on a controversial issue, you’ve taken a huge step in crossing a line. Yes, you should always have opinions. No one, certainly not me, is saying you should just clam up and say nothing. But don’t cross that line on certain issues unless you’re willing to pay the price. Personal issues, matters of sex, gender, private lifestyle are just a few things that should be avoided. Let someone else dip into those choppy waters. But if you MUST say something, base it on fact or solid sources you’re willing to quote. Making random accusations without any real evidence is a slap at your credibility and will leave people thinking you’re just another loudmouth looking for attention, and has no problem using someone else for your glorification. Rick Sanchez is one of those who always has his mouth in gear before his brain is running, and in this case he goes off on a whimsical moment of accusation with absolutely no proof. He’ll get headlines, mentions in places such as this, and will continue to cash in on being a gossip monger and appearing more than a little angry at his former employer. Let him be that person. Drawing this kind of attention to yourself is infantile and damaging. You have a reputation that can be permanently damaged because you’re not on TV being paid to be outrageous and start rumors.
INTELLIGENCE: LET SOMEONE ELSE BE THE LOUD MOUTH TO MAKE UNSUBSTANTIATED CLAIMS AND START DAMAGING RUMORS. KEEP YOUR REPUTATION AND IMAGE INTACT.

Remember Rick Sanchez? The former CNN anchor was fired from the network several years ago for some incendiary remarks and later made his way back as a Fox News Latino columnist and a reporter for MundoFOX. No stranger to controversial remarks, Sanchez asked this weekend whether NBC’s Jenna Wolfe was demoted at Today because she is a pregnant lesbian.
Wolfe made the announcement last week that she and NBC foreign correspondent Stephanie Gosk are expecting a daughter in the summer. Just this past November, Wolfe was demoted to Today‘s weekend edition newsreader, having formerly been a co-anchor of the weekend morning show.
Sanchez took to Twitter this weekend to weigh in:
