Teacher-Student Sex Case

Reported by Judy - February 8, 2005

One thing Fox News never tires of is stories about sex between teachers and students. Make that stories about sex between female teachers and male students.

John Gibson was it again Tuesday (February 8) pumping up the case of a 27-year-old Tennessee teacher who is accused of rape for having sex with a 14-year-old male student.

"We've been through this, I don't know how many times," Gibson exclaimed, giving the impression of an epidemic of teacher-student sex before coming up with two other examples. Two plus one, that would be three, John, so now you do know "how many times" we've been through this.

Gibson's report provided little information about the case, except the fact that he considers the teacher to be a "babe," I guess because she has blonde hair and was shown wearing what he called a Britney Spears hat.

Maybe Gibson had a crush on his seventh grade art teacher, and hyping these stories allows him to fantasize about what might have been. Or it may just be the need to feed the radical right's hatred of public school teachers in general.
