The Danger Of Hiring Beautiful …

You’re a news network.

You do a lot of outside broadcasts.

You’re based in image obsessed Hollywood.

With those sort of dynamics to deal with, what else can you do but ensure you hire gorgeous looking journalists.

But as with most things in life, there is always a dark side to your decisions.

Sometimes they never come out, but sometimes – like the video below shows – they do.

Of course if I was a cynical man – which I’m not, obviously – I would say that while there are some obvious inherent dangers hiring a beautiful outside-broadcast presenter [especially when you ask them to report in an area that is overflowing with happy, drunk people ] the reality is it’s a double whammy of strategic brilliance.

1. Beautiful makes men watch the news.

2. The potential someone might say or do something dodgy to the ‘hot’ presenter, keeps people glued to the screen.

It’s rating-winning-ad-revenue-earning evil genius.

What a shame I have a face for radio.

The guy in the video should come out with me, he’d see much better.

Except he’d only see the back of them as they run for their lives.

You have a face for an airless, black room Rob. Even radio is too good for you.

That’s why I am hoping my child will take after his/her mother. I’m sure they will, my genes are Italian and they’ll run at the first sign of dominance. [Sorry Mum, just joking]

Don’t want to brag but I’ve met Christina. She’s the journalist in the clip and she’s very smart and very nice. I’ve still got game.

Comment by DH

meeting her in a fucking magazine doesnt count.

Comment by andy@cynic

How on earth did you meet her … and more importantly, would she tell you how she really felt when this incident happened?

Comment by Rob

Have you seen the sports reporters the networks have sent to the world cup? No one wants to watch the matches.

Comment by DH

Comment by andy@cynic

We thought you were following Donald Trump’s guide to finding a wife, but you couldn’t afford to buy the rights to the Miss World Pagent. It didn’t work, but you doubled down and ended up with someone even more out of your league. She is a lucky and very nonjudgemental, patient woman.

Gold.

Oh George, that’s evil wonderfulness.

cockwipes.

Comment by andy@cynic

What does a producer expect when he places an attractive journalist on a street full of happy drunks? I would suggest he wants exactly this to happen. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

Comment by George

Reprehensible and misogynist would be other words you could use.

Comment by John

And, of course, the anchor just laughs off the sexual assault.

Comment by John

Yes. If she didn’t, she would be accused of being “too sensitive” by the sexist, rating addicted, self focused producer.

Comment by George

Sadly it’s not just the Hollywood TV networks that adopt that stance.

Comment by Rob

so i shouldnt remind you of the sexist fucking cake you got me. hypofuckingcrite.

Comment by andy@cynic

I wish I never seen that cake.

Comment by George

So does Mary.
