While I hate how Howard went about reorganizing the back office, it seems like his staff brought it upon themselves, at least in part. In this fight between HowardTV cameraman Greg and Lisa G, he constantly asks to be taken out of the decision, only for Gary to snap back and offer pretty much no change at all. Gary's probably absolutely right - even if he's put "in charge" of the Lisa/Greg situation, he knows Howard may one day decide to stick his nose back in it, despite wanting to be out of the loop. It was the same way with Doug Goodstein. For years, Howard kept asking for more leadership in the back, less unprofessional behavior with guests and the media, and separation between him and the off-air minutae. We have Howard joining AGT and trying to blossom in the mainstream to truly blame, but maybe his crew could have stepped up so we didn't get Turk'd. In my comparatively short time working in entertainment, this is a fairly regular occurrence. The boss changes his or her whim all the time. You can call out the contradictions while still working under their rule. Gary just never had the seasoning in the real world to properly deal with this stuff. That, and Howard raised him (for lack of a better term) to think of the on-air product first. Howard shot himself in the foot by blurring the lines between on-air and off-air, thus always undermining the office politics at his show. Until now. Sadly.
