#MeToo Being told by a reporter that he'll only carry a story if I "got a drink with him at 11 pm." I didn't go. He didn't run the story.

During early years of my career I was fired from work on disciplinary grounds for standing up to the CEO harassing a colleague. #MeToo

I was a kid and didn't know what was happening. I didn't know who to talk to about it.

Instead of writing "me too" on your FB walls and twitter feeds, find your harasser and write "you too" on his.
