Michael Strahan Refuses to End Vacay to Cover Hurricane Harvey


Michael Strahan ruffling feathers at ABC after he refuses to end his vacation to report on Hurricane Harvey...

From Page Six
ABC brass are fuming at Michael Strahan, sources say, after the Houston native and “Good Morning America” anchor did not cut his vacation short to return and cover the Hurricane Harvey disaster.
A source told Page Six: “ABC News asked Strahan to come home from his vacation. He’s from Houston. But he refused and is still floating around on a yacht in Greece somewhere. ABC is really upset with him.”
Another source said that ABC staffers “just cannot believe he didn’t come back.”
He did send well wishes.

Don't wear out your welcome Micheal Strahan. Huge story & it's all hands on deck. If your bosses need you its for a reason. Sometimes we can feel entitled. Watch out this could be a test. A. Rod taking that spot

Only reason they really wanted him is bc he's from Houston and that would probably mean more viewer$. They need sensationalism and a personal twist to make their network stand out from the other 100 covering the hurricane.

Welp, they should have had their lawyers write that clause in his $7 million a year emplyment contract, or offer him some sort of compensation for ruining his vacation... Can't hate a brother for playing by the white man's rules.

12:43 - you are spot on. This is probably a sensitive topic for him, and his neighborhood in Houston floods every year, and recedes the next day. Nothing new with this storm except all those multimillion $$$ suburban homes are flooded.

Thanks to everyone on the thread who sees what's really going on. Had River Oaks not flooded (i.e. Upper-Middle Class white households) this would be getting average to minimal media coverage.

On vacation, means on vacation. If I were attempting to cover such devastation in my childhood hometown, I would be a teary mess. Everyone's emotions are not for sell, or to be used to boost ratings.

Shit, Michael laying underneath his white girl enjoying himself. He's not leaving that white pussy. Somebody better tell abc that white girl is Michael's kryptonite.

That's right, you tell your boss you're not going help out in this special circumstance. Only a white person would stop a vacation to show off and help their team and company (and might get recognized for their extra efforts). Don't be like them devils, you relax and enjoy your yacht in Greece and petting your white cat while sipping on cocktails with fruit and umbrellas in it.

I had a boss do that...call me on my vacation to ask if I can cut it short by a week. Nope

Well considering his job is in "real-time", he gets paid much more than the average Joe & he's from Houston. Disney would've reimbursed him & his friends for that Vacay. I would think he would be a team player. Ratings is the name of their game.
You'd think he would've flew directly to H-Town and got his gapped toothed ass on the ground helping. This speaks volumes to Strahan's character.
TJ Holmes is a real journalist and should be in that spot.

@1:33 & @2:00. BULL. My great-uncle stay off Crosstimbers & had to be evacuated by boat. Tidwell, Crosstimbers. It wasn't just Rich, White folks. Lot of Black people in Dickinson & Beaumont too.

Micheal Strahan is a Dumny. I wouldn't have left a duo gig it be part time f an ensemble. Most journalists media people work their whole lives to have a talk show.

Look Robin Roberts & George Step hanwhatever can work Micheal can too. He's not special. He's not obligated to Houston but ALOT of people have done things. Shows your character if no one asks

Yo these comments ��
Me thinks the yt media was sick of all the memes that black folks were creating about that preacher in Texas. So a "source" had to leak some shit about a black man not doing enough or doing his job for his hometown.

@7:15 "You'd think he would've flew directly to H-Town" Where is gone land ... on a lily pad?

Anonymous said...

@3:40 same place all the other reporters landed....My point is if you have a platform that you can use to help your home town people, then get the fuck up & get out there Boots on the Ground. If this big bitch didn't want to get his hands dirty then create a damn gofundme page from his yacht in Greece......
Doing nothing makes him look WACK

^^^ they just want to use him for Ratings.

@1:33, 1:34 and 9:42 EXACTLY!!!!

He can still donate money
BUT coming back from his Vacay
Which I'm sure he was looking forward to getting away from his problems/work

If he came back it's not like the waters would recede....

Also I think it WAS smart of him to ditch Kelly

I don't blame him. I wouldn't have cut my damn vacation short either. They would wait till my ass got back from it.

And as far as the team player bullshit that I saw in these comments: The "team player" usually is only a team player because it benefits THEM...
