    Re: News Anchor Inappropriate?

    I can't imagine this story getting the same legs had it been a man in swimming trunks. Or at least the comments wouldn't all start off first saying that the guy shouldn't have been showing his abs because women can't control their objectification. Should she have been on air in a bikini? From a professional standpoint, I'm not sure it's the best idea ever. However, she was dressed appropriately for the venue/activities.

    what does that have to do with anything?! wearing a swim suit for a car accident story? Weird. Wearing a swim suit for a story about in waterpark in which you demonstrate one of the rides and end up in the water? Not weird.

    Counter-argument: Do you really think they'd ever said a male reporter to cover that kind of story, in this manner?

    Meh, I am guessing she will be fine. Erin Andrews seems to be doing ok.

    What if the man was wearing a 2 piece?

    That's true, but she may have wanted a more Diane Sawyer type of career.

    Yes, I'm sure Erin Andrews wakes up every morning and thanks god that she had her privacy violated in such a gross way.

    Uh, yeah, that was a little unessesscaery. The girl was hot, but at time like these you can't say stuff on the air that you would say watching this in your living room.

    Why does his dropped rape accusation matter? You boys are treating him like Leath treats Bubu.

    Unprofessional is unprofessional. Would it be less of a story if it was a comment made by a woman about a man? Probably, but it wouldn't have been less inappropriate.

    yep, that is exactly what I said. point is, before you went soap box, is that if EA can recover from what happened to her, this reporter can do the same.

    He is in the public eye, he's just going to have more scrutiny on these matters. It's part of choosing to be a public figure. Kobe chooses the spotlight, therefore he's still watched about the rape stuff.

    But Kobe is smart enough not to make comments about hot females.
