Are you offended that so many cable news shows are highlighting women's legs? [View all]

First of all I'd like to say I am a woman and I am NOT a prude and there is nothing wrong with women showing their legs.

I'm not going to post photos because all the examples I've found are copy-written.

But here are a few examples, if you've watched any of the below mentioned shows I am guessin' you've noticed.

1) On FoxNews Megan Kelley's desk has a clear plexiglass front that frames her legs and the network has even given her a clear plexiglass box to rest her feet on so that her feet do not dangle. It is bizarre.

2) On 'The Five' on FoxNews they have Kimberly Guilfoyle sitting at the left of the table so her legs can always stretch out in front of the table - but they have Dana Perino behind the table where her legs do not show probably because she has short legs due to being five foot one inch tall.

3) On Fox & Friends early in the morning they ALWAYS have a woman in the center of the couch with a very short skirt.

4) And even on MSNBC the other day I noticed a couple of shows that were highlighting women's legs (can't remember which ones at the moment)

So the question is: Do you think it is offensive for the networks to be 'showcasing' women's legs on cable news shows?
