This is a description of the mainstream media.
If you can't handle getting second guessed you are a poor leader.
I once worked for a company where the CEO seriously sent out memos to the entire company addressing rumors (about him personally, his personal life, etc) that maybe a handful of people heard.
The effect on the he management chain in terms of indicating that acting like a child was ok...was pretty horrific and sudden.
Fast-Nop3081812dI once had a funny situation with my direct boss where I wanted to fix some shit that was dangerous for another department and actually screwed up by yet another one. Since that required quite some manual cataloguing work, I requested that my boss gave me one of our interns.
My boss refused and argued that the department who had screwed up should provide one, but they didn't have any. I told him that blame games wouldn't improve anything and we had to do that because only we could. He wasn't convinced and left.
Obviously, I still got me an intern. I also took care to explain why the pretty boring work I gave him was actually important so that he would get at least some sense of achievement out of it.
Two hours later, my boss called me and asked (!) whether I had found an intern. Sure, I said. My boss wasn't astonished and had known me well enough to be clear that I would flat out disregard him and instead do what he ought to have told me. ^^
