Bush Administration Siding With Anna Nicole Smith

Reported by Deborah - December 26, 2005

Gregg Jarrett, substitute host for John Gibson, talked to Steven Greenberg about the recent news that Paul Clement, White House Solicitor General, wants to argue a case for Anna Nicole Smith before the Supreme Court. The segment was over the top sexist even for FOX. 12/26/05

A clip of Anna Nicole tummy down on a bed kind of squirming in a blatantly sexual way was shown quite a few times during the segment. Jarrett mentioned that she was "newly svelte" after some sort of spa regimen.
Greenberg proceeded to explain the legal background of the case and Jarrett summed it up as "Feds vs State".

Then side by side shots of Anna Nicole and Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared and Jarrett called Justice Ginsburg the "anti- Nicole" wondering how she would react to the attractive young woman. Then Ginsburg added that he wondered how the old men on the Supreme Court would react since she had been married to an older man.

Jarrett commented that it was ironic that the President who loves States rights would want to get involved adding
"Maybe it has something to do with her allure."

Greenberg's response was completely unexpected for a Fox Contributor.
"Don't get me started on the irony of this Administration or they'll start bugging me."

comment: This segment was over the top sexist. The shot of Smith undulating on her tummy was pretty raunchy even for FOX but the side by side photos of the two women was vile. First there was the disrespectful attitude towards Ruth Bader Ginsburg who as a Supreme Court Justice deserves to be presented in a dignified way. When Jarrett called her the "anti-Nicole" was he comparing appearance or intellect. Any comparison at all was wrong but the suggestion that Justice Ginsburg's judgement might be influenced by sexy Anna Nicole was very unprofessional.
