    Exactly. He knows to tailor his behavior since he IS scrutinized.

    Re: News Anchor Inappropriate?

    Regardless of everything else, it was completely unprofessional and pervy of the guy. Why would a news station want a guy like that representing them in this day and age?

    He was saying what every guy watching the show was thinking and the nation wants to castrate him for it.

    He's got balls.

    Greg Kelly and Brent Musberger would be good friends. Brent would be all " Oh yeah, I'm liking that body. Oh yeah, get in that water.".

    What professions applaud people for saying exactly exactly what's on their mind with no filter? Maybe a radio shock jock but that's their job and the only one I can think of.

    thinking back to when I was a waiter in college:
    "man you are overweight and shouldn't be eating like this"
    "wow my customer is hot and busting out of her shirt"
    "these foreign people are rude and don't know about tipping"
    "my boss is an idiot"

    All 100% true and what I was really thinking but wouldn't have been doing my job by saying them. You could come up with 1000s of these for any job.

    Not even close to context here.

    I'm not saying he should've said it on air, but we can't attack a man for saying what's on his mind. He should get fired, and that should be the end of it.

    For the record, he didn't say anything about her breasts, he just said he liked her swimsuit and that she should stay on camera. Was it inappropriate? Yes. Would I stop watching the show because of it? No.

    Re: News Anchor Inappropriate?

    Out of curiosity, what does the network gain from firing this guy? I agree with everyone that he should be fired because it's inappropriate, but by firing him, they are probably losing viewers. I'd love to watch something like this go down in the morning.

    What was on his mind was completely creepy. This girl was obviously uncomfortable with the assignment. When she is showing that she's obviously uncomfortable with disrobing this jackhole should've read the situation and not piled on.

    He's a dickwad who's trying to be outrageous like the other "Good Day" shows.

    Throw his *** in a suit and let the world see him play in the water park as an apology

    I would be fine with this.

    The person who had the idea of making her get in her swimsuit is just as at fault as this guy.

    Not arguing against you on this one. I am just saying that no one would have given it a second thought if the roles were reversed.
