Kelly Ripa, a news anchorwoman? WTF? I don't grudge Kelly but I never
knew she was a "hard news" anchor. I don't watch the networks often but I was flicking the channels and there she was. It was probably channel seven. Maybe this was going on a while or maybe she was just subbing. I don't know. I am not naive -- I know mainstream news has been BS for years but how can anyone take news seriously with an entertainment host delivering it?
2. In other countries, "news achors" are called "news readers/presenters"
They are not given the star-treatment like ours are..
I always like it when CNN-I takes over sometimes in an international story. It's refreshing to see some "age" on the faces, and to see women reading the news who are not lip-glossed/spandexed to within an inch of their life
