While everyone probably agrees that he is a real fool, at least he did the right thing and pleaded guilty instead of dragging a trial out at taxpayer's expense.
I completely agree with you. He was a good news anchor before he turned in to idiot mode and wrecked his career. Yes he is saving taxpayer's money by not dragging out a trial, but he will walk away with a slap on the hand probably.

Channel 3= Crazy co-anchors
Channel 10= Crazy anchor keying cars
Channel 29= Wife of Crazy anchor; news director who fires someone a day after returning from an accident.

Very Sad. Its easy to slam Larry for his transgressions but the guy has a huge problem. This is so much more than just a little snooping on a co-worker, this was an out-of-control obsession that cost him his career. Get some serious professional help Larry and good luck.

I believe that Larry Mendte is a good man who did a stupid thing. We all have done dumb things in our time. I hope he can get this behind him and move on with his career. Hopefully in Philly somewhere.

So - let me get this straight - she was involved in "inappropriate" activity with this married newscaster, sent 1/2 naked pics to another one, was drunk in public, slapped a cop, as well as tried to undermine this guy to his bosses but yet HE'S Wrong! She's the homewrecking pig that takes other women's husbands. She'll be making it big Jerry Penacoli did.

In all fairness, they are both in the wrong for their respective roles. Neither one of them is coming away with clean hands on this one. It's just more of a domino effect. She went down first, then him.

There is no fairness - She's a SHREW! He called off the relationship - she went on a vendetta to ruin him - he tries to protect himself since management wasn't and guess what - HE's RUINED - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
I'm not saying Mendte is innocent but women are conniving - I know I am one - we can con the pants off the pope given the right situation. Men just don't think sometimes and women are ALWAYS thinking.

KYW/CBS might as well get their wallet out and pay up. Alica Lane has a very good case of discrimination against them. They fired her before she was found guilty of anything in NY. Obviously they were looking at the secret crapp Larry was feeding to that reporter and came to the wrong conclusion. I am sure they will settle out of court with her now.

The fairness I'm referring to is that neither one of them had clean hands in this whole mess. They both thought they were above themselves and they both ended up in an ugly downward spiral. As for which one is more right or more wrong, depends on your moral measuring stick. Some say he, some say she; both can be either right or wrong depending on your views.

Don Tollefson was in a car accident and was out for a few months and he returned only to be fired a day later. Vince DeMentri is suspended indefinitely for allegedly keying Lori Delgado's car in the beginning of July.

Vince D also threatened Hurricane back in 2006 because he felt Hurricane made him look bad on air. Vince was reporting during a flood and walked in the water up to his waist. Hurricane warned viewers not to do what Vince was doing and that p*ssed Vince off who confronted Hurricane back at the station and Doug Kammerer had to step between then to prevent a fight.

Might I add that the ND was reportedly angry at Tolly for appearing at charity events when he was on sick leave.

Vince was suspended for the incident back in 2006.

I had heard about Vince. Tolly is still very marketable in Philly, he should land on his feet somewhere there soon. That stinks to hear though, he's really a nice guy.

I see my original post was censored; let's try again.

Channel 3 should hire Tolly since they only have two sports guys.

I don't know about Channel 3 for Tolly. No matter what they do to try to improve that stations newscast, it always seems like a dead zone to me. Channel 10 is kind of heavy with talented sports coverage, so although he might fit in with the team, I don't think there really is enough room for him. I could see him going back to WPVI and possibly being happy there for the long haul.

I can't see them having four sports people so either Keith or Jamie has to go. I vote for Jamie because I can't stand her voice.
