Junk conservatism, cont.
Fox news analyst Megyn Kelly, whose trademark is to combine impressive smarts with ridiculously plunging necklines, has taken her Fox-style perversion of political discourse a few steps further with a salacious photo spread of herself in GQ.
(By the way, is it still called Gentlemen’s Quarterly, or, like British Petroleum, has it officially replaced its name with its initials?)

1. It’s GQ, including copyright.LA replies:
Very mature response—you actually want a news analyst to be shown naked, and you don’t see how degenerate this is.Jim C. replies:
You may add the YWCA to the list of prominent acronyms that once stood for something. A friend who worked for this outfit assured me they stand for the empowerment of women and “YWCA” is only a brand they use for marketing. As far as I know the YMCA has not taken this fall but I am not certain. I view this maneuver as a paean to abstraction and a denial of cultural identity.N. writes:
I don’t watch Fox News much because I find their blondes to be annoying. However I’m not surprised to find one of them engaging in light weight porn in a magazine; after all, they are “empowered” women, entitled to do anything they wish to do, and who is to tell them otherwise?LA replies:
Well, all commercial broadcast stations are concerned about ratings, so there is nothing new about that. That they are concerned about ratings does not necessarily mean that they are not in the business of providing news. And even the fact that they use lots of jiggly blondes to increase ratings does not necessarily mean that they are not also in the business of providing news. The disturbing reality I’m trying to get at is that they are doing both together—providing news, via jiggly blondes. That’s the perversion that is the essence of Fox, and, to a lesser extent, and with slight variations, of many other news stations as well.November 22

I find Fox News extremely comical.
