A journalistic trend in recent decades has been the reliance by American progressives on international press outlets to tell the truth about our own country. One such source has been the UK-based international paper, The Guardian. They have a US edition with US based reporters and columnists. But if readers want to see how the US actions are perceived around the world, best to read the world edition. Official government pronouncements have always been designed to portray the US in the most positive angle. However, under Trump, facts are only one optional account of decisions made and actions taken. The Guardian is more important to Americans than ever.
The Guardian’s focus this week on Workplace Bullying for an entire week illustrates the paper’s boldness. Workplace Bullying, in fact, is a British term coined by the late pioneer Andrea Adams. The national prevalence is 31% (the US prevalence is 27%).
The paper is soliciting stories of workplace bullying from April 3 to April 6. Begin the submittal process with their encrypted online form.
While on-site, consider subscribing to help support the caliber of journalism rarely seen in the US.

While some have said that the situation with the Miami Dolphins is unique to football, workplace bullying is ubiquitous.

Unless you have been living under a particularly shady rock or have the preternatural gift to ignore the sporting world and all its permeating controversies, you’ve heard about the vicious bullying case involving Richie Incognito and the Miami Dolphins. Just in case: although the situation is far from concluded, it seems clear Incognito (a veteran offensive lineman with a history of bullying) tormented second-year teammate Jonathan Martin with racist and sexual slurs and forced him to spend $15,000 to fund a team trip to Las Vegas that he did not attend, in addition to other brutish behavior ultimately resulting in Martin storming out of the team facility to check himself into a hospital due to emotional distress.
Unfortunately, the Dolphins case may be more typical than many believe. While some have been quick to surmise that the professional sports locker room is a unique atmosphere, previous research about workplace bullying indicates otherwise. The severity may differ from place to place, but workplace bullying is a recognized issue in most Western countries, and its effects on tormented employees permeate all industries.

Taming the Workplace Bully, By Adam Piore, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, November 21, 2012
It started during the training sessions for her new job. Elizabeth Santeramo, a cancer information specialist in New York, saw a woman across the room glance in her direction, whisper in the ear of a co-worker, and then snort derisively. The episode seemed so brazenly immature, as if plucked directly from Mean Girls, that Santeramo shrugged it off. “The work we were doing was to help people who were just diagnosed with cancer,” she says. “We’re all empathic, compassionate people, I told myself. I’m just being paranoid.” A few days later, the abusive snickering intensified.

The reluctance of coworkers to come to the aid of bullied targets baffles and perplexes all targets. They are good people. Why don’t others help them when they need it. Here’s a study that provides new explanations (or simply reinforces what a bullied target might have suspected). (more…)
