2. Life of priviledge can make a person careless.

Once someone gets to the top of the heap in their chosen profession, it's easy to live a professional life in which you're never really challenged on your assertions. Not just power, but professional seniority can corrupt too.

6. She's no angel

Earlier in her career, when she was working at an ABC station in Virginia, she was involved in quite a scandal. Had a fling with a married co-anchor. Somebody snapped a photo of the wife chasing Gretchen down the driveway of their home!

9. The bleach blonde on Fox who looks like she chased a parked car and caught it.

She kind of has the "Persian cat" facial expression. Most of the Fox anchors look like they've slipped a chromosome.

14. She studied at Oxford University in some form

The consensus of websites seems to be it was "the Stanford program" at Oxford - which now appears to be this: http://bosp.stanford.edu/oxford/osp_oxf.html

Notice that list doesn't give a specific degree or scholarship.
