are they going to make her dye her hair blonde?

And a frustrated Sharyl Atkisson stamps out of the store, box of store-brand bleach in her hand, and says, "WELL, THAT'S JUST GREAT! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH THIS AND ALL THE HOOKER DRESSES I BOUGHT?!"

blonde, hot and breitbarted a story on benghazi? she's perfect fox material!
 
2014-05-05 11:55:24 AM  
Pretty interesting as a behind the scenes article about 60 minutes.

She could always do porn instead.

True.  Porn is a more respectable position than being a host on Fox.

She has hair?
 
2014-05-05 12:41:09 PM  
Having to dye her hair blonde, toe the right-wing party line, and engage in retarded banter with the Fox News trogs? This is the second most awful, degrading thing that's ever happened to her.
 
2014-05-05 12:41:12 PM  
Throughout the history of journalism what she did would end a person's career. But in the world we live in now it is the beginning to a Right Wing media career.

It doesn't help that a White House deputy national security adviser and the president of CBS news are brothers.
 
2014-05-05 12:44:08 PM  
was she the one that was just on Joe Rogan, talking about doing ayahuasca and mushrooms for the past 2-3 years?  hard to believe fox would use someone so open about tripping balls for the past coupel of years (and how good it is for you).
 
2014-05-05 12:44:39 PM  
I remember telling Lara Logan about the time when I was at Ben Gazzara's and I jumped the fence and busted this dude with my rifle butt and then Ben Gazzara's henchman blew up Red's auto parts store so I jumped him and he was like "I used to have sex with guys in prison!"  So I tore out his throat and then a polar bear fell on this fat guy.  The end.

Dude, Benghazi will last as long as Hillary does.  Its here for a LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG time.

whoops. Amber Lyon.

although, she'd also fit right in at Fox, as she's a young fairly attractive blonde.

Yeah, she'll fit in good.

Wouldn't mind fitting into her good, if you know what I mean. 
(hint:  I'm talking about my penis)

I don't see what the problem is, she was just carrying on the time-honored 60 Minutes tradition of just making shiat up for sensationalist news ratings.  It never blew back on any of the other 60 Minutes staffers who pulled the same shiat.

The bonus is that Dan might have been right for the most part...

I remember something major happening to her in 2011, but I cant exactly finger it.

it doesn't blow back if it is left-wing tilted made-up shiat.  Except for Dan Rather.

Do old Fox bimbos get bitter when they are ousted for a younger model?
 
2014-05-05 12:51:50 PM  
she does have an ax to grind with the Obama admin, but she's also smart so I doubt she'll fit in too well at Fox
 
2014-05-05 12:52:42 PM  
Benghazi will go away when obama and clinton are behind bars, where they belong.

Never Forget the Ben Gazzara Four!

 
2014-05-05 12:53:02 PM  
I'm not sure why 60 minutes had issues with her errors in that story.  They're well known for editing the hell out of a story turning it into a completely different tale.  So why should her errors be a problem.
 
2014-05-05 12:53:21 PM  
Did you check your source?
Yes.
Did you check your source with someone else who wasn't the source?
No.
Welcome to Fox News.  We also would have also accepted "I checked my source against my source's blog" and "Democrats... Baaaaaaaad."

You learn how to act stupid, like the chick from Fox and friends. From what I understand is she quite smart actually but sitting between the two ferns just sucks the brains right out of you.

Just has to be willing to sell-out any personal integrity...

Mrs.Sharpier: she does have an ax to grind with the Obama admin, but she's also smart so I doubt she'll fit in too well at Fox


What ax does she have to grind with the Obama Admin? They didn't do anything, she went and ran with a story from a guy that she would have known was a lie if she did any type vetting. So either she is an idiot and doesn't know how to do her job or she intentionally set out to misinform the public with a story she knew was false.
 
2014-05-05 12:57:30 PM  
She was brutally raped by hundreds of Egyptian man hands in 2011. I'd imagine she's probably at least a little pro-abortion, so even though she is blonde, I doubt Fox News would be interested. And it's not like Fox has any need or interest in foreign correspondents.

Does Fox News have any in-house talent? It seems that almost all their big guns (hmm) were
recruited - or stolen - from the Big Three networks or CNN; nobody at Fox actually began their
career there.  (If "a conservative is a liberal who's been mugged", the muggers have been pretty
busy in TV news.)

I pretty much gave up on "60 Minutes" after Andy Rooney retired (and passed away); his commentaries
were my favorite part of the show.
 
2014-05-05 01:06:08 PM  
It's sad to see how far off the rails 60 Minutes has gone. Seems like every other segment is a CEO handjob and/or company puff piece.

60 Minutes pulling up to your office used to mean "Oh fark, we're about to get roasted." Now it means "Oh good, we're about to get our ass kissed."

Yeah, it wasn't just fingers.

Agreed

She became an Australian hip-hop rapper?
 
2014-05-05 01:08:44 PM  
Yes, let's all sexually objectify a woman who was sexually assaulted while doing her job.
 
2014-05-05 01:08:45 PM  
Logan and 60 Minutes had been searching for a new angle on the Benghazi story for the better part of a year, and finally one seemed to arrive.

That's the problem, Lara. Don't go looking for the story you want to tell. Bad journalisming.
 
2014-05-05 01:12:06 PM  
The real story here is that Jeff Fager is a complete tool.
 
2014-05-05 01:14:19 PM  

FlashHarry: blonde, hot and breitbarted a story on benghazi? she's perfect fox material!


On Fix, the story will be true. So yes.
 
2014-05-05 01:15:04 PM  

Larry Mahnken: Yes, let's all sexually objectify a woman who was sexually assaulted while doing her job.


And if you read the article, she allowed herself to be sexually objectified in order to build up her career and her CV before going to CBS.

That's not condoning her being sexually assaulted, of course. I'm just saying that you should recognize the whole story before nitpicking one thing that has little to no relation to the other.

James!: Pretty interesting as a behind the scenes article about 60 minutes.


Yup, although the song's a familiar one; people too busy politicking and backstabbing to do their damn job.

She reminds me a lot of some managers I've worked with; smart, extroverted people with a strong work ethic and buckets of ambition... but who use it to climb the ranks as fast as they can, rather than develop the experience necessary to actually do their job well.

That particular combination of ambition and ability has probably caused as many disasters throughout history as rank stupidity.

gameshowhost: The real story here is that Jeff Fager is a complete tool.


With a name like that he couldn't help it. Could you imagine the childhood he had with that name.

Yeah, within 4-6 weeks they did the Benghazi story, the NSA cock polishing, and Leslie Stahl's "Green Energy is Dead" segments, all while using the last couple minutes for self-fellating e-mail reading.  I haven't cared to watch since.
