That's what they're up against, a workplace full of man panic.

I can't comment on Greta Van Susteren as I don't really know much about her but it's pretty rich of Megyn Kelly who has a nice and illustrious history of sexist comments to now be all in a huff. Jon Stewart did a piece on her comments re: mat leave which were much in the same vein until she got pregnant and overnight became progressive on the issue.

Interesting

Maybe they will be allowed to wear pants on the air some time in the future.

I think Irvine posted a couple of times about how a lot of the opposition to gay marriage is from sexist men who are still wedded to strict gender roles. And this story is a good example of that exactly.

It's also really brilliant that you have 4 conservative guys sitting round moaning and groaning about the nasty modern society in which women have to work. Meanwhile, they are against universal healthcare, against childcare programs, against Planned Parenthood, against mandatory paid maternity leave, against minimum wage, against student subsidies, against a social safety net, for lower corporate taxes, for unfettered free markets that have exported most of these manufacturing jobs where the "breadwinning" dads used to be employed, etc, etc. So families can't make ends meet and now moms have to work full time? Shocking! I mean, who coulda seen that one coming?

What a smart post. They don't see the connection, apparently.

I'm not a huge fan of Russell Brand, but this is epic:

Russell Brand on MSNBC Mocking Media - YouTube

I love the look on his face when asked whether he prefers stand up or making movies.

But he made a huge point on how ridiculous broadcast news can be. "Is this what you do for a living?!"

Well down, Russell.

They're now censoring their own:

Rush Limbaugh: Fox News wouldn't discuss state of GOP - Hadas Gold - POLITICO.com

How amusing...

Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Fox and Friends. She might actually elevate the level of discourse on that show.

It's a local Fox affiliate. KTVU's anchor may be related to Ron Burgandy, but this is a team fail.

They of course tried to blame the NTSB.

I saw that on my Facebook feed. I wonder if that was deliberate, because the editorial failure was momumental.

No wait, no. Having worked in TV news in the past, it is likely that producers got too excited with valuable information and rushed to put it on air. I could imagine they barked orders at the graphic department and everyone else, thus not allowing any room for rational thinking.

Either way, shame!
