DIDGE - The View From Down Under

An Aussie’s ridgy-didge view of world affairs and popular culture.

We Report. You Wank.

Recently I’ve started to wonder if the Fox News Channel was turning into a porn network. They’ve had their little moments before, but lately they’ve been showing quite a lot of near-naked woman.

Yesterday they went into overdrive. I saw, at least four times, various pictures of a woman in a bikini, in all kinds of poses, and I wasn’t even paying attention. I think it might have been linked to the “teacher sex scandal” plague that’s currently engulfing Fox. It's in very poor taste to show images like that. Though silly me, thinking Fox might have a tiny bit of integrity.

The idea that the story is in any way newsworthy, let alone deserved of repetition throughout the day, is idiotic. The fact that it enables them to constantly broadcast images of an attractive young woman in sexually provocative poses makes the whole thing even more dumb.

UPDATE: And indeed it is (Just found the story on Fox News Hounds):
Two Lusty Teacher Stories Appear Just In Time For FOX
