what's the deal with S.E. Cupp's backless dress today?

The camera pans around to show the co-anchors on MSNBC's "The Cycle".

Hey! S.E. Cupp's black dress is mostly backless to the waist!

Who would wear a provocative outfit to appear on a news commentary program?

What the hey? Must all conservative women on TV trade on their sexuality?

6. Honestly...

....maybe it's because men don't usually dress in sexually provocative ways in professional situations, but conservative women in the public eye seem to do so?

17. There was an article about this. About the stylists on FOX News

It isn't an accident. It is intended to pander to the LCD.

21. Lowest common denominator.

An audience interested in "infotainment" rather than information.

27. FYI

Some of us find a nicely pressed suit, colorful shirt, and strongly patterned tie to be just as sexy as a backless dress.

One time walking around DC I almost died... gorgeous (though most likely sleazy-ish) men were everywhere.

15. I think the observation makes a valid point

Its not catty or sexist .

The show is bad ,its a rerun of Morning Blow Hard where the steady cam operator circles round the talking heads trying to create some
show bizz pizazz .At Any moment the 21st. century "Kennedy" remake will take off her glasses toss her hair as the romantic muzak builds up to a climax and speak her scripted drivel .

16. I guess my point was muffled.

S.E. Cupp already had/has a credibility problem with many MSNBC viewers, for what comes out of her mouth.

This is what conservative women on TV do. They can't get ratings for their drivel, so they go bare.

This is not a criticism of women who go bare on television. It's a criticism of women who go bare (unprofessional) on news shows.

19. What people don't realize is it is the policy of FOX to sexualize the women.

So they're defending the policy and the stylists, really. Criticism of them, I would not call "catty".
