Serious news...with boobies!

Fox News continues to aim for excellence:
Fox News has hired Courtney Friel as a correspondent and substitute anchor. She will host Fox & Friends Weekend tomorrow and Sunday, Bill Shine announced today.

"Friel will join co-hosts Kelly Wright and Greg Kelly in anchoring the morning program this Saturday and Sunday from 7-10AM/ET. In addition, Friel will be a correspondent for"
TVNewser also suggested we check out Friel's online gallery, adding that one shouldn't "miss all her swimsuit photos..." Alas, those photos have disappeared since that was posted, so I thought I'd provide the pic below.

Me, I'm of the if you've got it, flaunt it camp. That's fine, but Fox is starting to seem like a 1963 Lake Tahoe Fuller Brush convention--a bunch of ugly, creepy men surrounded by hotties who are wondering just exactly how they got there. We are probably months away from midriff-bearing twins doing reports as "The Gibson Girls." Sure, they'll have the thinnest fig leaf resumes--journalism degrees and a couple years in a top 200 market doing stories about local lottery winners and the brave granny who defended herself from muggers with a cane--but shouldn't "the most watched cable news channel" at least try to act like they care about serious news?

Of course, I understand what happened here: Bill O'Reilly probably had a say in this hire, but what is he going to tell Ann "Let's take a closer look at those breasts" Althouse? She's bothered by the boobies.
