A left wing American anything???? I think it's an oxymoron. I don't think such a creature exists. Obama who at times is called the leftist of the left, {A communist} in fact is WAY to the right of our very conservative Prime Minister Harper. The USA is so far to the right that the center is considered to be "Far left". Therefore, all political discussion in the US media has become irrelevant and meaningless. Whether it comes from Fox or from MSNBC it's all BLATHERING BLUNDER. It's no wonder that those Americans who watch the news have less knowledge of reality than those who watch no news.

Men and women ARE different. They can never be the same - thus comparisons between them will ALWAYS have differences.

The question is: Do our laws treat men and women differently? If so, show us how. If not, there's no reason for this entire argument.

LOL!

Roughly, yeah.

It's like ignoring the kings of gerrymandering (Democrats) while claiming the Republicans are immoral for gerrymandering - even though you almost can't find any evidence they are doing so.

FOX News is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch owns newspapers and other media outlets on three continents. Besides making money from these ventures, his other agenda is to change the rules so that billionaires like him do anything they want.

Not so bizarre. The main market for FOX news is young and middle aged men. What better way to hold and keep the attention of these men than to have two or three of these knockouts delivering Murdoch's propaganda message.

The local stations have women that are attractive but these women are stunners. This is a marketing tool.

Also,

If these so called Feminazis do exist why aren't they screaming about the leggy blond Miss America candidates broadcasting the news on FOX?
That has to be one of the most biggoted post I have ever seen!!!!

Women have just about closed the salary gap if you consider the fields they have chosen and the number of years in a particular career. Many do take off to stay at home with kids for a few years, thus falling behind in the salary catagory. As for breaking into a field, it has nothing to do with equality. It has to do with the type of careers that attract certain people of one gender versus the other.

Now, your stupid statement about FOX contributors: yes, the women as well as the men, I might add are usually very nice looking, but do you have any idea the educational background of most of them? I can assure you, I am not uneducated but I am not nearly as educated as 90% of them. You might be, that I do not know: I doubt it..

No, none of this is a conspiracy as you would like to think.

Attractive women who are highly educated as well. You forgot that part. I don't know what the OPs problem is, but he/she sure seems to have one.

Based on the people I know that watch FOX, either you are totally wrong about the market or our friends and relatives are delighted you consider us middle age, but we are not excited that you think we are men. I have always heard FOX news is mainly viewed by older people. Maybe you know more than others abou this.
