...to attract more viewers?
And distract people from facts.
Works for me
Works for me!!!
don't watch faux but maybe check out the exposed skin...with the mute on.
none of those hold my attention. got any others?
That's how thy fight "socialism and communism.
More to come.
If those hot babes are supposed to attract more viewers, it's working, 'cause The Fox News Channell is beating the living crap out of all the others...
It's a "Moral Majority"/Republican thing.
Isn't capitalism great?
I thought that sort of exposure was not allowed on US TV??? Especially a national news channel!!!
Where's the outrage from the moral majority??
Where are the 'family values' brigade?
Where are the old-faithful conservatives?
Works for FOX
FNC – 1,540,000 viewers
CNN – 434,000 viewers
MSNBC –335,000 viewers
CNBC – 208,000 viewers
HLN –338,000 viewers
I might start watching that POS network now... feeling so conflicted... not sure what to do..
You've posed the wrong question. Why do other news networks behave in such a sexist manner by dressing their female anchors and reporters in pantsuits that mimic male attire?
'Cause that's what Hillary Clinton wears.
What are you talking about? All those dudes are wearing suits.
Because god commands it! Bring me flesh and bring me wine....
Males in the U.S. tend to be both more "conservative" and more "Republican" than other "segments" of the general population. I believe that in the last election for example, McCain/Palin only won one "demographic" group among the voters, white males.
White males have tended to form the "base" of the Republican Party for quite some time. So, I wouldn't be surprised if such "sex appeal" is intentionally used to keep their viewing audience interested in watching. I also like the above post which points out that it tends to "distract" one from what is actually being said on their shows. More style, less substance, so its pretty simple.
if you got it, flaunt it. megyn kelly is another hottie.
Because if Fox News' viewers began to think, it would be the end of Fox News, so they have to distract them.
1st pic is great, need more to form an opinion.
ridiculously disgracefull.Exactly as I expected from FOX.
I really respect that Blonde's opinion!
btw NICE photoshop!!!
First pic it looks almost like shes just wearing undies.
You realize that none of these women are with FN anymore, right? Me liking the 1st pic.
True. Even though I have absolutely no problem with female skin on TV and should probably be doing more to actively encourage it.
Is this a photoshop deal? That first pic looks too good to be true...
it makes the news better
Those have to be photoshopped, at least the first and third. I mean look at the third picture for example, right by the thumb. Would a hem on any clothing really be that crappy that it had massive uneven bumps?? Just another attempt to slander Fox News (not that I watch Fox or any of the others for that matter).
yes they are all photoshopped.
I guess so. I watch a bit of Fox News, and I probably would have remembered if I had seen something like that first photo...
Do any of you who bought into these pics when you saw them think most Fox News viewers are gullible dolts...?
The thing is, there is more than a grain of truth the idea behind the photos, so if one doesn't examine the pics closely and realize how revealing the photos actually are, they're kinda believable.
Concidentally, I just watched SNL, and in some skit involving the news, one of the characters was referred to as something like "attractive blond Fox News correspondent" and she was wearing an outfit not unlike some of these photos.
So obviously, this is a thing with Fox that many people are picking up on, so if one believed these pictures, I'm not sure that qualifies them as a gullible dolt.
why do people think they're photoshopped i dont get it
The first pic is either photoshopped or just some freak occurance due to the way she is sitting at that exact moment -- a type of wardrobe malfunction if you will -- or an "optical illusion" of sorts due to looking at a still image from a broadcast. There is no way that woman is wearing a skirt that high throughout the show.
The other pics I'm less certain about.
No, its actually an "Honest News"/The actual facts thing.

Well, the embed didn't work, so go here to see the live footage -
i mean honestly would you watch the news if it didn't??
my god... is Venus Williams an anchor now???
I love the first and second pics.......one of the reason my eyes are glued at Fox News...lol......
Yes, I watch Fox from time to time as well. They are quite, shall we say, "entertaining":
The whole point of this thread is about how revealing the photos are. I wasn't using any fancy gadgets to uncover the deception. I just looked at them in a way any other red-blooded American would, and before I could finish saying, "I'd like to crack off a piece in that", I could tell they were photoshopped.
Yep, like the saying goes; "It's a Fox thing. You wouldn't understand..."
Apparently you looked at them closely then. As mentioned, a cursory glance at the photos in a thread about how revealing the photos are does not instantly shout out "fake!" I mean, it's not like they are topless or anything. The humor and photoshopping is a matter of degree.
Plus, just about the only person who seemed to definitely buy them and pronounce Fox as outrageous was a foreign female poster. You didn't see me going off on this issue, for instance. But then, I examined them closely as well...
In the video you posted, it explains that they are photoshopped. As does the description...
But maybe the video is photoshopped! Two photoshops equal a non-photoshop, no?
Wow, I knew Fox news was leading CNN but I didn't realize it was such a thrashing. More than a 3 to 1 difference. Maybe that's why when CNN was covering Palin's last speach at the tea party they were unusually kind to her. I did find it odd but I guess they are trying to be nice to conservatives to attain more viewers and get those advertising dollars.
I think partly it's becuase of a divide and conquer effect. Right wingers want to watch Fox, while left wingers are spread among the rest of the shows. The other part is that maybe more right wingers watch TV than do lefties. I don't know. I certainly don't think it's important or indicative of anything larger.
I was shocked they televised that speech. When is the last time -- if ever -- that CNN covered a paid speech by a private citizen live and in it's entirety? Very bizarre. I doubt they would have covered it had it been on a weeknight, but still very surprising.
Don't think they are aiming to be nice to to conservatives though -- I'm sure they just figured it might attract more viewers than a Larry King repeat. And it did, as at least in my case, since I tuned in for some of it.
If you don't like scantily clad women, pls watch Iran TV or Pakistan News.
