I have to go to work early, so I sometimes catch the local news on Fox 45 some evenings.

But I am forced to turn it off within minutes when the SO-CALLED anchors, who are dressed like 1980's disco bar flies, grin like Cheshire cats and move their arms in exaggerated movements like Silent Movie stars!

Combine this with bad writing, misleading, sensationalized-one-sided, shallow non-news stories and you have a recipe for comedy -- not hard news.

After about 3 minutes, I click it off and my wife hollers at me.

Is it just me?:cool:

Ah, but that Karen Parks has a great set of.................................eyes. But what's with that left elbow twitch? She looks like a chicken flapping its wings.

I don't know, but I love watching that woman anchor move. I think she might be preg again. I can see why.

If I had to exclude an anchor from my criticism it would be Karen Parks.

She is a lovely, good news reader and reporter. She should be running the place!;)

i only watch fox 45 in the morning to see how candace looks. everything else is ike a public access show. i have no doubt in my mind that i could put on a more worthwhile show from my dining room. the previous anchor was ok, but she started putting on the lbs so they showed her the door.

You're kidding right....Do you ever watch the other network's newscasts? I'd say that they are even more one-sided than our local Fox station (not to be confused with the cable Fox channel). Then there is the lovely reporting by Sally Thorner. I'm so glad she's retiring. I can't stand to look at her condescending expressions or listen to her condescending voice.

Go Vitas!! I just love that weather man for some reason.

I'd love to experience some "exaggerated body movements" by the new FOX45 weekend sports anchor Kristen Berset. WOW.

I'm going to get in trouble for this. But I don't like female sports babes. Sorry, folks, I must be a dinosaur.

They bug me big time, especially when they are in the locker room. Turn off. The cutesy questions and the hyped, high-pitched enthusiasm makes me change the channel!:rolleyes:

Agreed...

I just wish she would take her partner Kai Jackson and his arching eyebrows with her.

Dude, your too poor for her taste. If you net worth is 50 mil or more, you might get a glance, if she were still single!:P

Sally Thorner never regained the sparkle she had at Channel 2. When she returned to Channel 13, she seemed old and haggered.

I couldn't have said it better. She is a knockout but not a movie star type. You could really imagine picking her up in some bar and maybe knocking her sox's off in the back seat of the car in the parking lot. Yow!
