Well-written, and flaming.

One more thing: I don't understand this need on the part of stations to be number one. Yes, I know that ad revenue is based on numbers.

But, I remember when NBC was last in the ratings a couple of decades ago and one of the suits honestly said that even in third place the profits were pretty damn good.

So, why doesn't Fisher just provide decent radio for its market and live with the revenue it gets? I mean, I can't believe they are going bankrupt or anything.

I think this greed that engulfs American corporations is killing us.

Surely there's enough money out there for everyone if they could just be satisfied with being number 2 or number 3...

I realize woman in the media have to look sexy to get work but they are victims of women who do themselves up who don't realy have to, who simply do so for personal gain or vanity. There are many times where woman dress sexier than they have to simply to exploit males. The best example that comes to mind are female waitresses and bartenders who do it for better tips, but there are also many woman who dress provocatively when they go out in public simply to get attention and bask in feeling desirable. As I said before, the woman who participate willingly are your own worst enemy. They want their cake and to eat it to.

The image of woman pushed by media is of a sex object, loud and clear, and woman are buying it for what it as is. You buy the magazines and watch the shows.

dress sexier than they have to simply to exploit males.

You poor victims.

Besides, since when shouldn't we be allowed to look good and feel sexy? That's life, Andrew. Nobody's a victim.

But there is a difference between a woman choosing to feel good about herself and having to please the medium and those who control it.

If women don't buy into it, who are they going to work for? If "media is pushing a sex object," that's what they will hire. If you want to be hired, you'll give them what they want within limits . . . and sometimes without.

You don't really make sense. Is there something wrong with sex?

BTW, j'hove, Steve McQueen was a hunk in my day. Mmmmmm-mm.

You want your cake and to eat it to. You want to dress like an object but not be treated like one. Don't wear something low cut then be surprised when men stare at your tits and toss dollar bills at you.

Take for example Sabrina Register over at NW Cable News. Here is someone (IMO) who is not 'sexy' per se, nor does she have big boobs, or is she super thin. Yet she portrays what an anchor should be; pleasant looking and very enunciated but not over-bearing so that her reading of the news just 'flows' very well. I think that but for her choice to first be a good mother (which I applaud) - she could have (and can still) rise(n) to an excellent anchor position, either for Jean, Kathi, Steve or even at a national level - should she choose. I'm very impressed with her. To me she's in a class with Paula Zahn and/or Debora Norville...very simply class acts. I'll be rooting for her to replace Jean so that I can remain 'comfortable' with KING 5. [I love you Jean, but there comes a time for all of us :)]

"wonder if Shannon Sweatte doing anything? "

Ummm... are you playing funny with his name, hoping nobody knows what he's been calling himself for decades, or is this a Geritol moment for you? He's been kicking Lewis county broadcast ass since the late '80s.

Maybe you need to consider a little WASL time on the topic of Reading Comprehension. Your point was that women were somehow better. I showed that women were just as shallow as men. No better, no worse.
Jeez, the AllHailChucks Crew really should charge for schooling you.
One day -if you work really hard- we can get you out of Elementary School.

chucks...

In April,s case, the PD did not like people with Latino dissent

Please help me sort out the negatives in that statement....LOL!...seems to me you are saying the PD was PRO-Latino!!

chucks

gawdamn spell check needs to learn to read minds. LOL!

Good 'Ol Days

Yup....totally agree!!! Bring back the live and local shows. Duckworth was a great guy!! Flack was a fantastic weekend producer!! Dissing Ed Hume was a HUGE mistake. Tami and Dan NEED to return (with raises!!). They also let go of their board-ops. Where are they??? If I was Fisher, I call ALL THEM, apologize, get on my knees, and get KVI back to where it was........and that was ON TOP!
