The Girls On Fox News: They Report. We Decide. [Bumped]

Girls? Not Really. But some beautiful women.

I would give a great deal, including some body parts to have Megyn Kelly. She was an associate at a big law firm in DC before her natural aptitude was discovered. Where were women like that when I was an associate?

He left out Catherine Herridge, who, IMHO, is the most beautiful woman on the network.

And I don't think I saw Julie Banderas, who is also gorgeous.

I especially admire Jennifer Griffin... That's one tough lady...

There is a law against being knock-out gorgeous while having a Mensa IQ... Megyn Kelly should be prosecuted without mercy.

Catchy little ditty.

Great walking ads for cosmetic surgery, dentistry and makeup artistry. But has any one of them two brain cells to rub together?

Fletcher, there are two or three lawyers, to include a former county judge, Monica Crowley has a PhD in something, and it would be my guess an assortment of various degrees of the sort that women usually get, but I doubt there's even one ethnic grievance degree, not one Women's or Gayandlesbianandtransgenderandwhycan'tIscrewboysandgirls Studies major.

But that's all just credentialism. I think they hold up against the joyless petting zoo on the other networks, once you filter out the code words and implicit assumptions of whatever it is they read from a teleprompter. There's something else as important, and that's credibility and integrity.

Fox has bothered themselves to report on some fairly serious things like the invasion of our Libyan Consulate, or the government deliberately overseeing the transfer of firearms to the sorts of drug running lowlife who behead innocents, massacre whole birthday parties, and the like. Oh, they get around to it, but only if Fox has already been reporting on something for a few weeks and makes it impossible to ignore, damn their eyes.

To be fair, I've seen them try. Not long ago one Fox competitor sent a head turning blonde to cover, alone or she might as well have been, rioting Cairenes, with the customary ugly, predictable results. The MSNBC and CNN viewers told the Fox viewers that this proved that Fox viewers are stupid.

Not that I discount things like covering speakers drinking a little water while they speak, or holding cameras on the President while he boards a huge aircraft to go to some course he hasn't played yet, while some of the girls of CNN or MSNBC describe in glowing terms the outfit his frightening wife is wearing as she boards a completely different huge aircraft because she was taking her holiday someplace else. Those things are important to find out about, too. As well the intimate, personal, one on one, maybe-I'll-get-my-friend-to-join-us interviews. I can go back to this stuff online, it seems that he wears nice suits, his wife looks good in anything, and there's nothing to worry about except for the mean people who are making it very hard for him to do things to make us all happy. This makes him sad.

Ha ha, just joking around with you, I don't take them seriously. Why should I?

And nobody, ever, is going to write a song called the "The Girls of MSNBC", or "The Girls of CNN", not a perfectly serviceable toe tapping one that I could imagine the band playing in a windowless joint somewhere when the fistfight breaks out. Wait, I take that back. I could see them getting Sarah MacLachlan to take a stab at it; MSNBC and CNN are used to people changing the channel out of revulsion by now, anyway. We are at least as well informed, better on some stories, and what could easily be a swimsuit calender; they get the likes of Chris Mathews, Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, or that fat bag of dough named Urk, or Turk, his name evades me right now. Cenk? Ctenk? I'll remember it after I click publish, as usual, darn it.

"Has any one of them two brain cells to rub together?" Cheap shots, Fletcher? That's not how you usually play things. Grace and self-restraint, on the Internet, of all places.

That goddamned song's been playing in my head since yesterday. It doesn't stop. I want it to stop. It has to stop. I thought it would help it stop to watch MSNBC or CNN, but it hasn't stopped.

Fox hires pretty women that generally have real degrees in the matters they report on. For example the 'weather girls' are actual meteorologist. The business reporters not only have degrees in business or economics, many have advanced degrees. They also have Miss America winners and candidates. And has anyone noticed how they seem to actually like and respect each other?
(Just don't get Kirsten Powers and and Kelly on camera together. That is the exception. )

And none of all that explains why Fox appears to think that whether one of their female staff is a high-maintenance airhead bimbo or not, that's the way they should look. Or why the women go along with it.

It is possible to look good without looking like an airhead who spends all day in the salon, you know. I don't suppose many of the Americans here see British breakfast TV very often, but our female presenters manage just that.

To be fair, Fox isn't alone in this. Hollywood is far worse.

Fletcher could have a little homo-bitterness working there.

Roscoe - BS.

My only complaint against the Women of FOX is that there are not enough redheads, and they wear sleeveless dresses all the time. Looks a bit odd when snow is falling in the background windows.

Jeez, Fletch. Don't be such a prunt.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a cheap, calcified, whitish structure start in the jaws (or mouths) of various vertebrates and worn to ease up down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also use teeth for the purpose hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but to a certain extent of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

The general make-up of teeth is alike resemble across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction modifying in their show up and position. The teeth of mammals drink deep roots, and this figure is also found in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, how, the teeth are attached to the outer outwardly of the bone, while in lizards they are attached to the inner side of the jaw by way of harmonious side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are attached around tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that accumulate the jaw.
