Sexy News


by Tracee Sioux

Here's one more reason to turn the TV off during the local news hour. No journalism experience, but plenty of modeling experience, this is the new "anchor" at an East Texas news station. All journalists with a college degree, apparently we wasted our time.

And this photograph is actual marketing for the news station complete with billboards on the side of the freeway. Apparently, the station was having such financial problems they have also signed a "reality show" deal to document this little sexualizing the news experiment. The non-stop details of violence wasn't sexy enough for you? Now we should have the journlists dumbed down and showing lots of leg and cleavage?

Here's the reality - you suck Channel 19.

I'm disgusted as a serious journalist, a woman, and the mother of a girl.



To watch me give my opinion on an issue on a competing station click here. Of course, it's another sexy news topic.

If only she was just the weather girl. They made her ANCHOR. But this should make you feel better, the show was cancelled after just one airing. Journalists 1, T&A 0.

I showed this to my hubby and he said, "she looks like a hooker"... I told him I think that was the point. I wonder who their target market was supposed to be, exactly? Nevermind, I know the answer to that.

Love your site. Love your femimommy ideas. I think you're great.

Rhonda, I love you for saying so.

Unfortunately, they are the mainstream news. Their target audience is me and my family, which includes an impressionable little girl and a little boy. Children who are busy formulating their ideas of what women should be, what feminine value is, and who they are.
