Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Among Various Changes, Fox News Women Now Wear Pants on the Air

Recently released Fox News host Bill O’Reilly became infamous for angering liberals by making comments about how women looked on the air. But after his departure last month and that of co-president Bill Shine on Monday, viewers have noticed something different about women:

They’re wearing pants now.

Hosts Jenna Lee and Sandra Smith have both appeared in recent weeks wearing pants on the air instead of the dresses said to have been regulation attire before.

This may not seem like a big deal, but for years women have been forbidden to wear pants on the air.

In a 2013 appearance by Fox commentator Gretchen Carlson on the Fox News podcast Kilmeade & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade noted that she was dressed casually.

“Nobody’s going to recognize me because not only am I dressed casually, I have pants on,” Carlson responded.

Kilmeade didn’t know what she was getting at.

“Now, pants are not allowed on Fox and Friends, remember?” Carlson reminded him.

Speaking on ABC’s The View in April, former Fox contributor Jedediah Bila said, “We used to go into a room and there were a bunch of dresses you could choose from. I was told at one point I wasn’t allowed to wear orange because [then-CEO] Roger [Ailes] didn’t like the color orange, so I didn’t wear orange.”

“I didn’t see any pants,” Bila continued. “People always say, ‘Why didn’t you wear pants?’ You’ll notice I wear pants a lot here.”

“I didn’t wear pants because I didn’t see a pants option. I wasn’t given a pants option, so I had to wear skirts,” Bila said.

David Folkenflik, author of Murdoch’s World, alleged that Fox arranges women on stage on the basis of their attractiveness and, during panning shots, shows off their legs.

Speaking at a book store stop in Los Angeles in 2013, Folkenfile told the audience, “Essentially they have what they call the ‘leg cam,’ and that is to accentuate the sleekness and design of that particular person on [the] air.

Last July, three Fox News regulars spoke to Mediaite and denied allegations of leg cams and rules about pants.

But until recently, few if any women appeared on stage on Fox News without showing their legs.

What do you think? Do you think Fox is being forced to become more PC or is this a needed change?
