We all know that news anchors are selected because they look good on camera rather than because they know anything about what they're reporting. But I think Fox Business takes it a little too far (http://gawker.com/5283519/nobody-at-fox-business-has-any-idea-whats-happening-at-all). At least they're attractive.

Not exactly what I would call "breaking news."

Funny clip, though.

I love how the guy who is supposed to have the story looks like he is trying to Google it on the fly. Guess CNN.com was running slow that day. :) At least the first person she threw it too had some idea what was going on with her own job, it just didn't have anything to do with the story the anchor was talking about.

That is indeed one easy-on-the-eyes news team. Even the guy....


...ahem. Samantha Bee had a Daily Show bit a while back about the Fox News Skanks, including one who, as I recall, was wearing something akin to a leather miniskirt.

A leather miniskirt?

Okay ..

Help me out here: what is bad about that?

Fox are past masters at giving the public what they want before they know that they want it.

I'm probably being whooshed, but just in case anyone else is getting whooshed even worse, you do all realize that that was dubbed over, right? And not very well, at that: The lips just don't bear any relation at all to what they're saying.

It's just that the audio and video are badly unsynced in the recording, with the video trailing the audio. There doesn't appear to me to be any kind of fakery; the lips do seem to match the speech, just with a delay.
