On the heels of Tavis Smiley being “ordered to pay PBS $1.5 million for violating the network’s ‘morality’ clause,” one has to wonder if Mr. Smiley was just another victim of the news industry’s seductive journalism phenomenon—one more hypersexual male specimen to flush down the proverbial career-ending toilet. Ironically, it appears the networks have little interest in getting a handle on seductive journalism, apparently because they believe sex sells, often resulting in journalists [especially female journalists] overexposing their anatomies, including cleavages, legs, and chests, and/or positioning their bodies in ways that’s rather offensive to television audiences.
Diane Gottsman, a nationally renowned etiquette expert and founder of the Protocol School of Texas stated, “in a corporate world, you want to stand out for your job success and not your cleavage or triple Ds.” She further stated that “more skin is less power.”
