USS Enterprise "scandalous" video

Postby Guinness Fan » Mon Jan 03, 2011 9:09 pm

Not sure if anyone caught the lead story on most US news broadcasts yesterday (and continuing today) about the "scandalous" videos shot aboard the USS Enterprise featuring the then-XO, now CO...and the resulting "outrage" and investigation.

Seems to me to be much to-do about nothing...political correctness and an agenda of some sort...Must be a slow news week...

OX, now CO, of the carrier U.S.S. Enterprise made/starred in some videos a la Porky's, i.e., frat boy humor and showed 'em over the ship's TV system. Story here.

Certainly some of the "scandal" has to do with his role, rank and responsibilities as a senior naval officer both at the time and now. Certainly doesn't seem to set a good example. And I don' think the "morale" explanations fly. And it certainly calls into question his judgement as an officer. We'll see where this goes or how quickly it disappears.

I think everyones making a big deal over nothing. I watched the video yesterday. It wasn't that funny to me but nothing to flip out over. Nothing in that video offended me.
