POSITIVE:

The story starts in 1970 when a stand-in editor of The Sun decided, while head honcho Rupert Murdoch was out of the country, that their Page 3 girls would go topless from then on. At first there was some natural reluctance, but once sales began to skyrocket (40% in the first year) the idea was quickly embraced by all.

Fox News Bond Girls and Barbie Dolls.

They are playing a role and they know it.

From AmericaBlog earlier today:

I've read that 16% of Americans have blonde hair. On Fox the percentage sure seems higher. And funny, most are women.

With video about all the leggy women.

Yeah...so I agree that Fox does a bit of the "Page Three" thing, but the evolutionary psych angle should be taken with a giant grain of salt.

Like a freaking huge one.
