Fox News' Lou Dobbs, Juan Williams, Erick Erickson, and Doug Schoen just got beat down by some women. More awesomely, the women were Fox's own Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren, and the beatdown was for trying to validate their Neanderthal-like opinion that women should stick to raising children.<quoted text>
You do stay true to form. You dislike a message so you attack the messenger. I know it posses you off that on cable news Fox has 2 or 3 times as many viewers as the left wing sites.
Do you include Faulkner among the bimbos on Fox?
Both women took a vocal, public, and ballsy stand against the preposterous opinions expressed by the men. Earlier this week they were "horrified" by Lou Dobbs' segment about a recently released Pew study detailing that women were the sole or primary breadwinners in four out of 10 households with children. Erickson had the most outrageous notion on the panel, claiming it is "anti-science" to not believe men should "dominate" women.
Usually this does not sound out of the realm of ridiculousness coming from these men. But this time Fox's own had something to say about it. On Thursday, Van Susteren took to her blog and unabashedly lashed out, "Have these men lost their minds?(and these are my colleagues??!! oh brother… maybe I need to have a little chat with them)(next thing they will have a segment to discuss eliminating women’s right to vote?)"
Megyn Kelly used her Friday show to discuss the issue with the misogynists themselves. She started the conversation by asking Erickson to explain himself: "What makes you dominant and me submissive and who died and makes you scientist-in-chief?” The smug smiles on their faces when she introduced them were just the start of this exchange that clearly showed sexism knows no political orientation.
So I guess that's the messenger attacking the messenger.
very classy. i bet most of the FOX crowd switch straight to FOX right after the soaps.
