I saw her lumping herself in with people who are discriminated against based on color. What a worthless cow.

dontbreakthebend: Nobody would be talking about this story if it the anchor was smoking hot. .

Ken VeryBigLiar: mjbok: TrixieDelite: How about this--she delivers the news in a professional manner and has done so for ten years.

If she was really good she wouldn't still be in the LaCrosse market after 10 years. LaCrosse is market 127, which means (even as an anchor) she is making very little money. If you're not moving from market to market (going up) every 3-5 years, you're doing it wrong.

//Of course she might like a market of that size.

IIRC her husband is either the station manager or involved in it as well. Granted, La Crosse is about as entry level as it gets in that line of work, her reason for staying isn't purely appearance.


She wouldnt have an on-air job in a mid level market, let alone a major market.

The poor lawyer wasn't bullying, but he sure is being heffered.

Ken VeryBigLiar: IIRC her husband is either the station manager or involved in it as well.


If that's true that makes more sense, but station managers don't (or at least didn't when I was in the business) tend to stay at one station or market for 10 years either.

If she's happy with it and where she's at, that's great for her. Her approach to this whole thing is wrong. The fact that the guy is a d-bag doesn't change that her reaction was poor. Someone in that position, no matter the market, is going to get lots of weird correspondence and I can't believe this was the first one mentioning her weight.

Metal: We understand that ugliness and fatness are genetic disorders, much like baldness or necrophilia, and it's only your fault if you don't hate yourself enough to do something about it.

Do you prefer genocide against religious minorities or ethnic minorities? Inquiring minds want to know. I don't fall under either, but one is stupid to not to pay attention to current events. You can bet on just about anything.

He sends her a private email, she goes all global with it (while also admitting she is fat). Then she tries the angle of being "bullied".

If you read what he wrote (privately) and see her public response, I tend to side with him on this one.

^ This. Fat angry out of control biatch made a private conversation public. Part of her habitual failure to keep her mouth shut.

So, being fat is now like being a different race, having a different religion, or sexual preference now?

Last I checked, you can actually physically do something about being fat. I think she went a little overboard with the accept-me-how-i-am cliches when she compared herself to being persecuted like that.

My understanding is he posted it on Facebook.

THAT is bullyup.

zobear: CygnusDarius: So basically he's trolling IRL.

I guess I can't fathom why anyone would take the time to write such an email. I see fat people a lot but never really feel the need to email them about it - or even say anything at all. IMO, It's none of my business.

How empty can one's life be if this is how s/he entertains/feels better/feels superior, etc., (about) oneself?




I don't think it's so much about this lawyer having an empty life as an enormous sense of entitlement. I doubt he's ever been on the receiving end of criticism due to his appearance--probably, just the opposite. I'm sure his appearance has always enabled him in getting whatever he wants and he probably truly believes he's superior to other people.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: The dude is right on. She's a morbidly obese woman, and nothing in his letter was inaccurate or "bullying". She's setting a horrible example for young viewers. It's no different than it would be if she was smoking cigarettes on ait.


How do you know her age and weight (or body fat percentages, etc) to figure out her BMI level of overweight-obese-morbidly obese? Frankly, you sound fat. Maybe it's "eating cheetos and typing in the closet because I can't come out or someone will know fat" type fat - but you definitely have some strong views, man.

That's what's bizarre. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills... Since when did obesity become a health-neutral status analogous to race, gender, or sexual preference? It's a behavior, and a chosen lifestyle, and a very, very unhealthy one at that.

TrixieDelite: The douchenozzle's email included something about being a good role model for girls and women.

How about this--she delivers the news in a professional manner and has done so for ten years. How about focusing on the fact that her ability to do her job isn't tied to appearance, gender, religion, sexual preference, country of origin or skin color, but to the basic fact that she is able to do her job, and do it well.

How about finding the lesson that says that ability trumps waist size, and she should be respected for her professional practices rather than her BMI?

Jackwad.


Was going to tell you that you sound fat, see it's already been covered.
Carry on then.

I live in what would probably be a mid level market city, and some of our local anchors are overweight. In fact, most of them are very ordinary-looking people, and I like them just fine. Not that I mind looking at the hot anchors, mind you, but I don't really need my anchors to look like models.

Brostorm: he sends a private email telling the plain truth and she pulls the fat privilege card on TV? Um, she could have just ignored i or responded in an email, like an adult.


I can't even imagine putting a private email out there in public (especially if it was true) But then, I have no desire to be on TV either.

Honestly, I was on her side when I first heard about a "viewer harassing a newscaster." Then I saw the video where she read the letter, and I thought, "That's it?" And then she tried to turn it into some bullying issue, and to be honest that's when she lost me. She's a fat attention whore using the bullying topic to defend her poor lifestyle choices.

sure haven't: The only thing that was handed to him is publicity. She didn't hand anyone their ass. She whined and then equated obesity with sexism or racism, which is sofa king retarded that nothing else she says will register. idiot.


Which is ridiculous as you can't choose your gender or race...99% of fat people are that way because they choose to be.
I know. I am kind of fat myself so I am not hating. But I am fat because I need to exercise more, or at all. But because someone is fat is no reason to be rude to them over it...but he wasn't rude so yeah..the fat twit should shut her hole or stuff it full of more food.

mudpants: cyclist


This story has been about cyclists ever since the guy posed behind his mountain bike, wearing kneepads and elbow pads. This guy substantiates my long-held belief that dudes with "gym muscles" are the furthest thing from masculine. If you sit at a desk under fluorescent lights all day, no amount of time spent lifting weights under even more fluorescent lights is going to make you manly. Just embrace your effeminacy, and stop embarassing yourself.
