    Bottom Line: FAR MORE americans VOTED for OBAMA than watched FOX NEWS


    FOX NEWS picks BEAUTY over BRAINS as it hires former pageant queen winners to be female correspondents, but after all, how many beauty queens have ever graduated from an IVY LEAGUE college?

    • Sadly, the same can be said for the majority of TV outlets be it national or local. Women get a very raw deal when there's such emphasis on appearance. After 35 years in B'cast journalism, it's nothing new to me and it's criminal. Once in a while, a news director or station manager realizes the potential in a female employee with all the active ingredients, and looks take a back seat to her writing skills, insight, the ability to interview and 2 minutes into the broadcast the women around her, hired for looks alone, begin to exude just that. They aren't capable of a stand alone report or a late breaking story without a prompter..forget the ability to report off the cuff and think on their feet!

      Many a "field promotion" has come from a female reporter in the right place at the right time. She's doing stand ups one day and behind the anchor desk shortly thereafter, when the intelligence and ability exuded just that once puts her in the spotlight.

    • What a really stupid analogy!! You are one dumb dude. Hilarious!!
