The Heart of Propaganda is the Packaging: Faux Hotties on Fox News
After all, it is faux news – propaganda – and the real heart and power of propaganda is in the packaging, in appearances. And FOX News knows all about packaging.
It’s like a KFC buffet – all breasts and thighs.
But where’s the beef?
There isn’t much, unfortunately. It’s all smoke and mirrors over there at FOX, a glitzy bait and switch disguised as a show and tell.
Allure Magazine has put up an online slideshow with the proclamation that “With its bevy of babes, the network should be called the Foxy News Channel.”
I don’t know about that. Everyone knows that sex is more in the brain than in appearances (or maybe that’s just liberals…). What are otherwise attractive people can become quite unattractive when they open their mouths. Let’s face it: ignorance is not an appealing characteristic.
But there is no doubt that FNC is playing to the lowest common denominator, if not the lowest necklines – and highest hems.
As conservative website IHateTheMedia! reported in 2009, “Fox News ratings are rising, so are its anchors’ skirts.” Their accompanying photo exposé confirmed their claim quite convincingly.
I like a beautiful woman as much as the next guy but I turn on the news to actually watch news, not a fashion show. I want my intellect, not my libido, to be stimulated.
I’ve been in cardio-rehab for three months now, subjected to an endless parade of bouncy faux babes strutting their stuff on one of the three monitors overhead, while ESPN and ABC go about the mundane business of actually reporting the news – and wearing clothes.
Put it all down to old-fashioned bourgeois prejudices if you must, but I have a problem with this.
Let’s look beyond the gams…I mean the glam, for a moment and at what comes out of their mouths, It’s neither promising nor enlightening.
