[Blind Gossip] Imagine if you made $100,000 a year and your boss said, “Times at the company are tough. We’re not going to fire you… but we’re going to have to cut your salary from $100,000 a year to $25,000 a year.”
If you quit, your boss gets rid of you without firing you. You get to claim that you were offered tens of thousands of dollars to stay… but decided to move on.
That’s the case with Discount Girl. You probably saw this newsy woman on TV on a daily basis when she was on this long-running show. She comes across as the girl next door. Was paid millions for that job and the next couple of jobs she took. Now she’s leaving her current job.
She is pretending that she is walking away from a huge contract because it was just time to move on. Ha ha ha! Total spin. She was offered a 75% pay CUT! She turned it down.
Her bosses get rid of her without firing her. She gets to claim that she was offered millions of dollars to stay… but decided to move on.
Not Diane Sawyer.
