Every picture tells a story, don't it...

Once upon a time, when the world was young there was no cable teevee, no instant video satellite transmissions and no internets. There weren't any cell phones, fax machines or laser printers. Back then, news anchors were not sexy. Hell, a lot of them weren't even particularly physically attractive. An invitation to appear as a guest commentator rested on scholastic cred and verifably factual commentary. Wonkery, not wankery, ruled the newsrooms. Those days are sadly gone.

This is the face of "news" today. Behold, the megastar teleprompter reader at Fox News, Megyn Kelly. Does that photo shout "very serious newsperson" or what? Clearly her fans love her for her mind and she so deserves this recognition.
"TVNewser learns that 'America Live' anchor Megyn Kelly is in the 2010 GQ Men of the Year issue, which hit newsstands this week. Kelly is the only tvnewser to be selected for the 2010 media personality."
Chosen for this honor, of course, for her academic achievements and incisive commentary that contributed so greatly to a reasonable and well-informed political discourse.

"Wonkery, not wankery"

How do you get coffee out of a keyboard?

"that contributed so greatly to a reasonable and well-informed political discourse."

That's even funnier.
