San Andreas Today: County Commissioner boycotts SAN after museum opening controversy.

LOS SANTOS – Ever since taking the spot of County Commissioner last year, Thomas Mengele has had a complicated relationship with the largest of San Andreas's local media firms, SAN. Accusations of bias against the administration have been thrown around several times by Mengele and his staff, most notably during the rise of the now defunct far-right linked San Andreas Socialist Party (SASP). This year alone has had several flahshpoints and the Commissioner has very openly voiced his concerns on multiple occasions.

 

"When I look back on how we've been treated by SAN, it makes me question how fair they're being to us. I think the press should report on everyone, even me, but at least do it in a fair manner. They don't seem to be getting our side of the story a lot of the time." - Thomas Mengele, 1st of May 2017 at the "CPQL rally".

 

But despite the ever changing nature of the SAN team, (the company has had at least five separate CEOs this year alone), the gaping wounds have not healed. In fact, they've only festered over time, becoming gangrenous. 

 

Last Thursday saw the Mengele adminstration open its latest public project, the American Museum of National History in Rodeo. During the opening a small ceremony took place, which was televised by SAN. However, while the SAN staff were setting up their equipment, the County Commissioner claims to have overheard member of SAN's staff say to one of her colleagues through the radio that the following speech would be "long and boring", thinking her colleague had an earpiece in. Offended by this, he demanded that they leave and had security escort them out. According to eyewitnesses at the scene, he also called SAN "clowns" and told the woman who he had removed to go "f*** herself". Following the incident, he has vowed he will not worth with SAN going forwards.


"SAN constantly are rude and snarky to me and hold no respect for me as a human or the base line of respect, so I refuse to work with them." - Thomas Mengele

The member of staff from SAN who made the comments that offended the Commissioner is respected within the company as an experienced member of the broadcasting crew. When it comes to Thomas Mengele speeches, this isn't her first rodeo (though it is her first in it). It would appear this recognised loyalty to the company seems to saved her job, as she still remains in her current position. 


"I consider him as a human just like anyone else, I do not see him as being better than others just because he has such a high position. When it comes to respect, usually I respect people who respect me." - SAN staff member


Those who have positions higher up in the SAN hierarchy may be wondering exactly what sort of effect will the boycott have on the company. But not all SAN employees are that bothered by it. The member of staff who made the comments didn't appear too moved by Mengele's boycott.


"I don't know how much he planned to work with us in future. But I had not worked with him in a long time before this." - SAN staff member


David Raphael, CEO of SAN, has yet to make a public statement and this article will be updated when he does.


It looks like SAN's troubled times with the Commissioner has reached boiling point. What remains to be seen is whether the situation can be de-escalated and if the heat can be turned down a notch, or if this will continue to bubble out of control.

Comment: To be honest the fact that the county commissioner lashed out and told this woman to "Go F**k herself" isn't exactly the response of a professional either. I think both parties could stand to improve the way they act in a public, professional environment. He didn't have to lower himself and resort to insults, cancel the whole opening and then speed off in a McLaren as if he were an instagram rich kid with a dented ego. SAN also shouldn't make comments about their guests in such a way especially by an experienced member of the team.

Comment: I think the highlight of the article remains the exact SAN employee quote about mutual respect between one another, given that they seem to be missing out on meaning behind that term completely.

Comment:  Don't think this looks very professional from both sides involved. SAN needs to ensure their staff keep those sorts of comments to themselves. We should treat each other with mutual respect. Whole situation could easily have been avoided or handled better..

Comment: Getting a biased version of an article is not the press doing their job. While they have freedom of press, there is no guarantee they won't experience social fallout for their absolutely horrid journalism.

Comments: I remember it very well too, considering I was the one who got most of the heat for being "biased". There was no bias back then, but anyways this incident isn't really related to bias. It's just one SAN staff memeber who couldn't watch her mouth. Not the first time something like this has happened with her either.
