Kate Bolduan what happened? You are better than this!
What would inspire a news anchor to go on camera in front of a global audience dressed like Kate is beyond me. Candidly speaking, an indoctrination by operations like CNN and its industry peers comes to mind. It’s a culture more concerned with turning a profit than upholding the dignity of its female news anchors. Imagine if 90–95% of the news industry’s male anchors consistently came on set bearing their hairy chests or other parts of their anatomies in seductive ways. Women would scream foul, right? — Likely gossiping along the lines of, “What’s wrong with him? He thinks he’s this or he thinks he’s that.'” Well, tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of men from around the globe have the same sentiment about women. Incidentally, Al Jazeera America ran a classy operation before our jealous nation forced it out of the market by either denying and/or overpricing the network’s access to certain cable TV channels. Now, Americans are inundated with more prescription drug ads, healthcare ads, and out-of-place ads than ever before.
Seductive journalism is not smart journalism but rather a sleazy form of journalism unbecoming of any real news organization’s standards. CNN is “the most trusted name in news.” Can you believe a news organization would have the conviction and beliefs to own a slogan like that? It’s hilarious as hell, to say the least.
