The executive assistant is the eyes of the executive. She might be
instructed to watch out for issues that you have no interest in and
maybe no uthorization to be aware of.

The executive she represents might be too busy to have his/her hands
in everything, but still want to know about them. Sometimes there are
issues bigger than the document and bigger than you (or I) are
allowed to be in on.

Do your job to the best of your ability. That's what you are paid
for. What you AREN'T paid for is to approve/disapprove what
management wants.

Why don't you wait until you come up with a reason why it is bad and
then speak with YOUR management, not just assume it is.
