what's this crap?

Now I must admit one of the reasons I am blogging about is that I have a soft spot for Ms Sara Groen, however this article does highlight the double standards women face in the media.

As one commenter says: "I bet if she had a boob job there would be no complaining." Sadly, I think you're on the money mate. Can't have a woman expressing herself now.

I think the last paragraph in the story sums up the situation for women in media perfectly: "It (this story) comes after reporter Christine Spiteri alleged in a statement of claim filed in the Federal Court that Channel 9's head of news John Westacott said that for women to make it in the industry they've 'gotta have fuckability'."
