Bottom line: The next time you hear someone criticizing FOX News for
supposedly having a "bunch of dumb gals" as eye candy . . . Check out
their qualifications...let them speak for themselves!
I've certainly never had the feeling that they were dumb. They all seem educated and well spoken. I think the "problem" is that they tend to be attractive and therefore get labelled in some people's minds as "bimbos" as the old stereotype goes. This will be harder for people of the younger generations to truly appreciate but society used to categorize people into single attributes. You could be a large meat head athletic man who works at the docks OR a highly intelligent egghead who can barely carry his paper bag to his pencil pushing job. Some people still have this mindset, though not to the same degree.
