Martha McCallum Hits Back At LA Times’ David Horsey For ‘Blonde Barbie’ Comments (VIDEO)

Why is it the left is so hard on women, when they claim to be members of the party that supports women? Sexual harassment isn’t only physical. It’s belittling and derisive behavior that is meant to shame. LA Times columnist, David Horsey, got a lesson in that from FOX News host Martha McCallum after he called the women there “Blonde Barbies.”

Newsbusters has the story:

… On Nov. 15, The Story host Martha MacCallum said it was “deeply offensive” when L.A. Times columnist David Horsey called Fox hosts “blonde Barbies.” In a piece published by Motto, MacCallum declared that the women at Fox, who were “commodified” by Horsey, “deserve a public apology.”

She cited Horsey’s comments that have since been removed:

“Much like Roger Ailes when he was stocking the Fox News lineup with blond Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts, the president has generally exhibited a preference for sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels to represent his interests and act as his arm candy.”

… MCCALLUM: “We’re experienced journalists and reporters, most of us have been at it a long time,” she urged. “Between us, we’ve worked at all the networks and most prominent newspapers and publications.”

As evidence, she pointed to her own resume: working at The Wall Street Journal, CNBC and NBC before spending 13 years at Fox News where she now hosts a primetime news program that’s been “number one in its time slot since it premiered.” 

“Our success is not about hair color or skirts,” she added. “It’s about elbow grease, dedication and sacrificing time with our families and friends.”

What’s wrong with that guy? Didn’t his mother teach him how to respect others? Obviously not. He’ll think twice before he takes on the ladies at FOX News again.
