“To my left, the anchorwoman’s hand shot up. ‘Yeah, I’m wondering … uhhh, hypothetically … if your boss tells you that you have to wear short skirts instead of pants on the air because they want viewers to see your legs more, does that count as harassment?’”

International Women’s Day is a time to commemorate women’s extraordinary economic, political and social achievements through public demonstrations and discussions — or, you can celebrate the day like a FOX affiliate in Connecticut did: force everyone to watch footage of faceless women’s breasts bouncing through a crowd. Humina humina humina!

We have something in common with Sarah Palin: after we admitted yesterday that we had been rooting for someone other than President Obama to be TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year”, the former Alaskan governor took to Fox News to bash Obama’s selection herself.

So we gotta start making a list and checking it twice with not only Santa this year, but Keith Ablow. As the resident quasi-Dr. Phil of FOX News, during a new episode of Fox & Friends, Ablow offered a unique perspective on a viewer’s question about the a young boy playing with dolls. He said that the concerned viewer”s sister-in-law who had given the boy the doll was “nuts,” demanding “What’s so bad about kids being able to be masculine and feminine?”

While broadcasting his radio show, Kilmeade made an…interesting joke about Fox News’ hiring procedures. After being asked about the addition of Alisyn Camerota to his news team, Brian Kilmeade “joked,” “It was actually, we go into the Victoria’s Secret catalog and we can, ‘Can any of these people talk?’ And they all could and they all went to college.” When at first you don’t succeed with a binder full of woman, try the Victoria’s Secret catalog, can’t have ‘em sexy, who cares if they’re qualified, amirite?!

While this is making a bit of an assumption, it’s safe to say Fox News honcho Roger Ailes hasn’t given to many NPR pledge drives lately. If the Juan Williams kerfuffle didn’t solidify the rift between NPR and Ailes’ organization, the fact that they’re diametrically opposed in every possible way probably did the trick.
Well, it seems that the granddaddy of U.S. media tycoons finally has some of those crazy libs on his side. As Death and Taxes points out, NPR has filed a Freedom of Information Act to see what everyone is now euphemistically referring to as “the bin Laden photo.” In an oddly unimpassioned statement, NPR Executive Editor Dick Meyer wrote:
“Pictures of Osama bin Laden and other images from that mission would have compelling news value and public interest.”
Well. Not exactly the fiery rhetoric that Fox would go for but, nonetheless, it’s put NPR and Fox News in the same ideological corner, which is sort of radical.
