Did anyone notice how none of Lawrence O’Donnell’s colleagues came to his defense?

But let’s be honest. On your worst day at work, when your support staff and the people who work in a subordinate position to you have let you down and are failing the team effort required for you business to function at its optimal level, have you ever treated your co-workers the way O’Donnell did in the now infamous video? Ever?

The fact that this video was leaked speaks volumes about the people who work with O’Donnell and their opinion of him. The fact that all of this behavior occurred on just one night’s broadcast can lead a reasonable viewer to conclude that this was not anomalous behavior. The fact that the executives who have invested millions in O’Donnell as a network commodity have been completely silent in the aftermath of this video is telling.
