Brave Fox News Anchor Goes On Air Without Makeup to Highlight a Culture of Sexism Fostered by Fox News!

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | November 11, 2013 | Comments ()


Last Friday, Gretchen Carlson, the host of Fox’s The Real Story, appeared on air without the benefit of cosmetics, and she was really proud of herself for it, saying it has “never happened before on cable news,” and bragged that it was a first for any news network (someone should check with Rachel Maddow, who appears every night on MSNBC with what appears to be a minimal layer of powder for simple lighting purposes).

Why would she do this? To highlight the fact that women are being sexualized in pop culture. Hmm. I wonder where anyone would get the idea that women are being sexualized on TV?





Maybe it’s because the more attractive the anchor, the less men will listen? And Fox News needs all the not listening they can handle.

At any rate, yes, Gretchen Carlson: You’re very brave and not at all self-congratulatory, and definitely the first woman who ever thought to display the hideousness behind the Avon.
