Have you noticed how often those short skirts and dresses on the female Fox News hosts hike up? Do you think it's just a coincidence how often that happens?
If you're wearing a short dress or a short skirt and you cross your legs, it's almost guaranteed to ride up.
I've collected some screen grabs of Outnumbered, which has four female cohosts, over the last several months. Check out how all the ladies seem to have their legs crossed at all times, thus exposing more thigh.
In the screen grab below, Meghan McCain, second from the right, in a red dress, is the exception to the rule. Her dress is long and she has her legs crossed demurely at the ankle. The wreaths on the window show that this screen grab came from a show around Christmas.
But in this grab, from January, 2016, Ms. McCain has now gotten right with the program.
It's not just Outnumbered.
Do you think someone tells these women to wear short skirts and cross their legs? Or do they just all think the same way?
I report, you decide.
It is not just Fox News that I am seeing woman dressing inappropriately and immodest by wearing tight, sleeveless, cleavage baring skirts/dress, and stiletto sky high heels, but I am also seeing it other major tv stations including weather and sports stations as well. If I want to watch women dress like that, I would rather go out to a nightclub or gentleman’s club than watch the news. There is no doubt in my mind that the network and station execs, producers and stylists are telling women to dress sexy, even in the middle of winter, and right beside their male co-hosts, who continue to dress businesslike in their suits and ties. This is a huge setback for women who came a long way to make it this far in the news industry only to be told to dress in a provocative manner in a desperate attempt to boost ratings for the network, and we all know that target audience for those ratings is the male audience.
The news industry is supposed to be a serious business. But sadly with competition and ratings between the major and cable TV networks, it has turned into a form of entertainment, and seeing women dress provocatively on the air is one example of that.
That’s easy, they follow the path of Palin (who has not aged well at all). They tell these women to hit the bricks. (I accurately predicted that after the novelty of Palin wore out, and as she aged, Fox would take her off the air because then she simply sounded and looked like a nuttier-than-squirrel-sheet old bag.)
Sure puts the fear of the Lord in these ho cakes. Kimberly Guilfoyle is pushing 50. She knows the gig is up when Spanx, tanners, makeup, wires, wigs, and surgery can’t prevent her physical appearance matching her mental hideousness.
And Guilfoyle ordering the cameramen to keep the camera out of focus and not do closeups can work only so long. At some point the bosses are not going to allow aging female talent appear in the shot the size of postage stamps.
(E.g., ask any one of those women who are or were lawyers, such as Kimberly Guilfoyle, if their employer law firm would allow them to dress in that manner. No way that would happen, unless the firm does not mind losing major clients offended by the female lawyers looking like on-the-prowl for sugar daddies.)
Speaking of Kimberly Guilfoyle, she is the worst offender. When appearing on The Five she wears blouses to show max cleavage. Her skirts are always short. Her hair looks ridiculous, parted in the middle and ratted and spread out to the ends of her shoulders. And the worst, when on the show she insists sitting at the end of the table, this so the camera is dominated by her legs in the shot.
Side Note: Guilfoyle’s motive: To keep and maintain Neanderthal men as fans, those males who judge not on what she says, but instead on how she looks, which is like a desperate home-wrecking ho on the prowl at bars for successful men cheating on their wives, who will treat her like the (pavement) princess she is.
In regards to this being coincidence, of course it is not. FNC has bosses just like any broadcaster does. It is not coincidence that those bosses tell the talent to dress like as if going to a Friday happy hour to snag or trap a man to wed.
I guess it could be coincidence that no other broadcaster allows their female talent to dress like it is New Years Eve, and those who do dress like flirty high schoolers just happen to have ended up employed at Fox.
Some mentioned makeup. While it’s not true of all of the Barbie dolls reading Fox News teleprompters, some slather on the makeup with a putty knife to mask the flaws and try to keep up with the Barbies. A classic case is Kimberly Guilfoyle. I know I’ll be written off as a hater but most circus clowns have subtler makeup jobs. 😵
It’s common knowledge Ailes put out a (short & tight?) dress directive for the ladies but I wonder if he picks out the Barbies himself because so many of them look so much alike?
Yes, beautiful women can be smart. Yes, TV is a visual medium. But my favorite news source, PBS, picks reporters and anchors for their talent and experience first. Not much eye candy there but their news leaves Fox eating its dust trail.
If Roger and his audience want a thrill up their geriatric 3rd leg, take some Viagra and visit Pornhub. 👍
It is embarrassing watching with my children who we have taught to dress MODESTLY.
You would think a conservative cable channel would dress their lady commentators more respectfully!
Of these FOX “news” women, only McCain is sitting proper (as in what is officially considered “proper” with regards to women’s public etiquette in a dress/skirt). Maybe they no longer teach today’s girls the proper way to sit in a dress/skirt. But all of these women on the curvy couch are of an age that they know very well that, when sitting in a dress/skirt, you keep your knees together and, if it’s more comfortable to do a leg cross, you do so at the ankle. While propriety (such as preventing up-skirt shots) is a good reason not to cross one’s legs at the knee, it is also advisable not to sit in that posture for extended periods of time because it can cause related physical problems for some people.
And, crossing their legs at the knees may reveal more than just up-skirt shots – it also reveals that the women may not have very strong inner thigh muscles. It takes good inner thigh muscle strength to sit the way McCain is for a very long time period without the knees coming apart. That’s another reason why the Physical Ed teacher used to have the girls in her class do lots of inner thigh exercises. :-)
