"She's A Slut!"
  • Why Fox News is recapping “The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose” is beyond me. Alas, while “The Five” discussed how romance reject Nick Viall quite reasonably asked Andi Dorfman why she had sex with him in the “fantasy suite” if she knew she wasn’t in love with him, gross old dude panelist Bob Beckel word-vomited, “She’s a slut!”  At least a female co-host yelled at him.

"This Is A Caveman Dragging A Woman By The Hair"

Fox News’ new show “Outnumbered” pits four female anchorbabes up against one male guest. The premise? Gender wars! Fun! On Friday, the male guest, (unscrupulous) Fox Business contributor Charles Payne, wore a cute little accessory on air to signal his disdain for the opposite sex: cufflinks depicting a caveman with a club, dragging a woman behind him by her hair. Yes, really, he actually wore cufflinks depicting caveman domestic violence — he said so himself! You couldn’t make this shit up. [YouTube via MediaMatters]

Yes, I Actually Watched Some Fox News

As I read the chyron “Girls Gone ‘Mild’: Book Advises Women Not To  Raise Their Voices,” I was all ready to watch this Fox News segment advising women on how to carry themselves professionally in the workplace and then kill it with fire.

But as Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the author of Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit And Success, addressed “Fox & Friends” this morning about ways women can up their gravitas in the workplace, I found myself thinking, Hey, this is not such bad advice. Keep reading »

Fox News Host Megyn Kelly Believes In (White) Santa Claus

Fox News Host Megyn Kelly Believes In (White) Santa Claus
"Santa just is white."

Earlier this week, Slate.com columnist Aisha Harris wrote a somewhat tongue-in-cheek piece arguing that Santa Claus needed a makeover. Instead of always being depicted as a jolly, fat, white man, Santa Claus should be a penguin. Harris wrote about growing up as a Black child and seeing two versions of Santa — on TV and at school, Santa was white, but at home, the Santa who decorated her house (and delivered presents) at Christmastime was Black, just like her. Harris described how this omnipresent white figure made her feel as a child:

I remember feeling slightly ashamed that our black Santa wasn’t the “real thing.” Because when you’re a kid and you’re inundated with the imagery of a pale seasonal visitor—and you notice that even some black families decorate their houses with white Santas—you’re likely to accept the consensus view, despite your parents’ noble intentions.

Depicting Santa as an animal, Harris argued, “could spare millions of nonwhite kids the insecurity and shame that I remember from childhood.” She continued: Keep reading »
