    Ms. McHendry is going to learn that her level of looks and talent can be replaced by ESPN in 10 minutes. She should never work again for a national network and frankly, she’ll be toxic in most local markets. Maybe some program director in Bismarck, North Dakota will ignore this event and gladly hire a former ESPN reporter. As for the towing lot attendant — she did nothing wrong. After the humiliation she was subjected to, I give her credit for not taking it. All blame for this event falls on Ms. McHendry. May her career rest in peace.

    Agree 100%. We are becoming and ends justifies the means society. Never mind if the capturing or airing of something was inappropriate or worse, invasive; if its incendiary enough let’s go ahead and publicize it. The disgust over what people are saying is being over taken by concern how it was recorded or how it was publicized.

    The towing company has the right to record its customers. The towing lot attendant may have violated her company’s rules by giving the tapes to an outside party. But that is between the employee and the company. And from what I’ve heard the company is not going to discipline the employee. Furthermore, there no violations of Ms. McHendry’s rights. Period. Ms. McHendry has only herself to blame. She is lucky she hasn’t been fired.

    But leaked elevator videos are ok, huh?
    And I’m not even talking about Ray Rice.
    We all had a good laugh at Jay-Z being attacked in the hotel elevator thanks to TMZ paying for the video.

    Sadly, all you need to do is have a clearly visible sign on your premises letting your customers know that they are being recorded and that any said recording can be made public.
    That being said, unless the company is willing to meet you in the parking lot, away from the cameras, to complete your transaction … then you can sue if it is made public. Because you can’t force your customer inside in order to retrive their vehicle AND not give them a choice on whether they are recorded. BUT, the customer would have had to express their disapproval to being recorded from the beginning. In this case, McHendry is clearly told that she is being recorded and that it can be shown if she keeps up her stupid behavior and she obviously doesn’t care.
    I agree with you that this isn’t THAT newsworthy, but I understand the backlash.
    It’s the complete arrogance that bother us. The fact that she acts like this, is told that it’s being recorded and will be shown, …. yet doesn’t seem to care AT ALL! She thinks the rules don’t apply to her. She thinks there are no consequences for her actions. She clearly thinks that she is a better person than anyone who didn’t graduate college or doesn’t work on television.
    Then there is that awful attempt at an apology.

    On another note ….. damn, she’s easy on the eyes. 🙂

    The only thing I’d counter this with is that the tow truck lady tells her at the very beginning that she’s being video taped and she spews all of the insults after looking at the camera and knowing she’s on film. At that point, McHendry set herself up for everyone to witness the footage.
