    News Anchor Inappropriate?

    A Fox News anchor (local news) is being called a "creep" and "sexual harasser" after his comments to another reporter that was doing a story at a water park

    Did he really do anything so bad?

    Yes, he did not act like he had been neutered many years ago. He said what he was thinking instead of being PC on the air.

    Yeah, that's unprofessional at the very least. With that said, it's not a national crisis either.

    I think the station got exactly what they wanted.

    Re: News Anchor Inappropriate?

    He was making comments in the context with what most American males would be thinking, but doing it on the airwaves he looked like a sexist, creepy jacka#s......

    Now that it has gone viral, the young female reporter has to keep living this episode indefinitely

    Why is there a question mark?

    There's a difference between what you think in your head or say among your buddies and how you act towards a co-worker (on live television!). This isn't Mad Men.

    Yes, she is very attractive in that bikini, but my take would be while he shouldn't commenting like that (even if we all are thinking it), she also should probably be wearing something more modest if she doesn't want to be treated like that and she's a news reporter.

    Re: News Anchor Inappropriate?

    My initial thought was who at the station thought this was a good idea to put her in this position to begin with?

    If you've ever watched The Soup you've probably seen this guy about 100 times saying stupid stuff, it's what he does.

    .... The "if she didn't want that, she shouldn't have dressed that way" defense. I'm sure there's nothing misogynistic there at all.


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

    are you ******* kidding me? "She was asking for it?"

    What do you want her to wear if not a bathing suit?
