"I had to take her down like Chris Brown."
I've been to Hooters once. I can look at pictures of Hooters girls, I don't need to eat the crappy food.
What I was alluding to was the fact that you reduced them to 'little cuties.' Yes, I get that it helps that they are good looking and know about sports, but they also have had to work hard, network, etc. to gain contacts to do their jobs. Rachel Nichols is typically one of the more informed field/sideline reporters, as was Erin Andrews when she was roaming sidelines.
Just a little contradictory - isn't that ??
I just think it's the opposite. They can take an attractive gal, let her learn some sports, let her learn how to ask lame questions and viola - ratings increase. There's zero knowledge about sports in these sideline interviews.
A lot easier than taking a sports-wise 'not so attractive' gal and teaching her how to be good looking.
Sexist - sure, probably - but there's so much of it going on in media anymore, people have become blind to it. They just think that - WOW, all these good looking gals really know their sports. Coincidence ?? I think not.
Actually, the broadcasting journalism field is filled with very attractive women. So its not hard to find them. Was a perk of being a journalism major. ESPN doesn't have time to waste teaching people about sports. You know you're **** or you don't. I know people who have gone through the process. You don't get there because you look good.
Its like you think that because a girl is hot, she can't know sports. I went to school with thousands of good looking girls who knew their ****, many of them broadcast journalism majors.
At the risk of offending certain people, a lot of comments deemed sexist, racist, homophobic -- bigoted in general -- are based on cold, hard reality.
I don't believe ESPN would hire a total airhead when it comes to sports, but I do believe attractiveness, physical and congenial, is their top priority when it comes to on-air female personalities.
I think the answer's pretty obvious (Hint: It's called Hooters, not Wings), but I'm one of the seemingly rare people who believe that factual correctness is of more importance than political correctness.
I hate hooters, but I have been to Wing House in Jacksonville. Admittedly the wait staff was hot, but the beer specials are more of what brought me it.
It may not be PC, but I agree that most network are willing to hire arrtactive females and even make it a top priority when hiring. Hell, just look at cable news networks.
That said, I was good friends with many journalism majors. Some of those females could talk circles around some guys when it came to sports. And the really hot ones.......almost all of them got jobs at local stations right of of college. Guess my point is looks do matter, but if you are an idiot you probably wont get the job.....but I do think looks matter a lot. Hell, I know people who only watch HLN because Robin Meade is the AM host
Total and complete nonsense but then gain, you are the one who made the disgustingly baseless assertion that the Democratic voting base breeds like rodents and commits massive amounts of crime.
I hope you say this stuff in public and not just around your own bigoted circle of delusion. The reaction you get will be quite severe.
Of course you won't read any of this post because you put me on ignore. You talk tough but refuse to take the heat for your garbage.
The safest cities in America tend to vote Republican, whereas, the most dangerous cities OVERWHELMINGLY vote Democrat. The vast majority of gun crime isn't committed by NRA types, but by residents of these Barack-Obama-votin' dumps.
The 10 Most Dangerous Cities in America - MarketWatch
1. Flint, Michigan - Barack Obama 63.6%, Mitt Romney 35.4
2. Detroit, Michigan - Barack Obama 73.1%, Mitt Romney 26.2
3. Oakland, California - Barack Obama 78.7%, Mitt Romney 18.4%
4. St. Louis, Missouri - Barack Obama 82.7%, Mitt Romney 16.0%
5. Memphis, Tennessee - Barack Obama 62.6%, Mitt Romney 36.6%
6. Stockton, California - Barack Obama 54.5%, Mitt Romney 43.5%
7. Birmingham, Alabama - Barack Obama 52.6%, Mitt Romney 46.6%
8. New Haven, Connecticut - Barack Obama 61.9%, Mitt Romney 37.1%
9. Baltimore, Maryland - Barack Obama 87.4%, Mitt Romney 11.1%
10. Cleveland, Ohio - Barack Obama 68.8%, Mitt Romney 30.2%
All voting statistics are from Politico.com.
Keep in mind, these results don't tell the full story, as county statistics include suburban areas, with much lower crime, and a much higher rate of Republican voters, than inner cities. For example, St. Louis is an independent city, having separated from St. Louis County, however, we can still get the voting statistics for both the city and the county (which includes the city, I believe) from Politico:
St. Louis City - Barack Obama 82.7%, Mitt Romney 16.0%
St. Louis County - Barack Obama 56.2%, Mitt Romney 42.5%
So, in the St. Louis suburbs, the hardworking, loving, caring families vote Republican (52%, excluding city voters), whereas, the people who've helped make the city the 4th most dangerous in America overwhelmingly vote Democrat (82.7%).
The same holds true for Baltimore:
Baltimore City - Barack Obama 87.4%, Mitt Romney 11.1%
Baltimore County (minus Baltimore city) - Barack Obama 1.36%, Mitt Romney 95.5%
So, in both situations where we can get city votes instead of just county votes, we have 80%+ voting Democrat. So, making the reasonable assumption this holds true for all cities on the list, we can conclude that the 10 most dangerous cities in America average more than 80% Democrat, and less than 20% Republican.
There are also numerous studies which show that Republicans give significantly more to charity, on average, than do Democrats.
Republicans = Give more time and money to those in need; murder/steal/deal/rob/rape less.
Democrats = Give less time and money to those in need; murder/steal/deal/rob/rape more.
I ask you, which group of people would you rather have in control of your country? The answer seems clear to me, and the fact that America has chosen the wrong answer these past two elections is evidenced by the current dismal state of America.
Perhaps I'll go and say it in downtown Detroit or St. Louis, or any other Blue city. Would a gunshot to the head qualify as a "quite severe" reaction?
Wait, you're telling me that Detroit didn't vote for the rich white guy?! SHOCKER
