The guy chastised her twice on her FB page, sparking other comments from followers.

Admittedly, those pants are pretty unflattering, and probably wouldn't look good on anyone. Although I wouldn't go out of my way to write to her about it (We all get it wrong, sometimes), I don't understand how this is "body shaming." It was a rude insult about her lack of fashion sense.

So, I take it, in your view, his comments would have been fine if only he were a woman.

It's never too revealing/slutty.

No. But IME men do feel free to comment on strange women’s manner of dress. Sometimes I have wondered why news presenters wear certain things, but I’ve never written a letter about it. Maggie Vespa is a first class reporter, by the way. Recently she has been anchoring weekend news. She is quite talented.

I think that guy just does not like high waisted pants. Well, I have news for him, they are in style and are likely to stay in style for awhile.

Pants for women all used to be high waisted pants. Maybe this guy is too young to know that the low waisted pants trend was just a trend that lasted for longer than it should have.

I've noticed that the newscasters where I live seem to have very personal interactions with their fans on social media, so that kind of comment wouldn't be very unusual for them, but maybe it is for her.

Lol.
That's a rational leap.
Not.

No. It would not have been fine regardless of gender or position or expertise.

Not ok if Versace or Ralph Lauren or Tim Gunn himself says anything rude.

The only one I liked was the high waisted wide legged one. But I'm not criticizing someone on FB because of their choice in clothing. If for no other reason than getting called out on TV.

We have a female anchor here who is rather large busted. She has found a dress that is very flattering to her figure and I see her wear the same dress all the time only in different colors. She either goes to a tailor or else she is a great seamstress. She must have 5 or 6 of this exact dress. I noticed it but I'm certainly not going to message her about it. Some people obviously have nothing better to do these days.

Let’s consider another possibility.

News personalities are charged by their employers with making news as well as reporting it.
Take a fake Facebook account, post some insults, and the news person gets to respond and get media attention for her “brave and classy” reply.

Everyone is clamoring for attention these days. These tempest-in-a-teapot Twitter fights that always seem to make the news? Manufactured.
