How Fox News Stepford-izes Women

I feel like the same thing happens over at CNN’s financial desk but there they make their jawlines too sharp and their hair and skin tones get a bit creepy.

When a woman gets a job on the “fair and balanced” news network, she gets “Foxified.” No matter how she looks or how old she is when she signs her contract, these female contributors transform, appearing on our screens strangely clone-like, blonde and so heavily made up they all look around 40…Fox News is a modern day Stepford factory for accomplished women. By turning professors and authors into porn star doppelgangers, the network effectively communicates what women say is not as important how they appear.
