To: John Fahey, Chairman & CEO of National Geographic
Re: The Joke That Isn’t
During your presentation at last week’s all-hands staff meeting at NGS headquarters, you decided to go for a big laugh this way:
Now, meet three members of the Romani community (“gypsy” is an epithet) — Daniele Morgan, Aaron Williams, and Tony Hutson — who are stepping forward to tell you why “factual fiction” like National Geographic’s American Gypsies is not funny. Instead, it’s been a nightmare:
John Fahey rarely, if ever, gives interviews.
But we’re requesting one — partly to ask him this question:
What, if anything, would you like to say to Daniele, Aaron & Tony?
