I'm fine with this and basically agree with you. She probably has a smart publicist that saw the opportunity for major exposure.

That's just crazy talk...but not an impossibility. Maybe it's a gorilla marketing scam for the next P90X or Insanity workout scheme and the Lawyer is the work-out guy and he gets her to drop 100lbs in 6 weeks and they all make millions of dollar bucks !

Sure....based on the way most of us were raised we'll all agree (and many have said in this thread) the email was an asshat thing to do.

But if the email had merely read "Mah leetle girel sez yew is teh fat an ah thenk so tew." Then she would have dismissed it outright and deleted it. Hell....I practically *guarantee* she's gotten emails like that before.

Bullying is an ongoing situation which turns someones day to day normal activities (like going to work or school) into a nightmare. It is very serious for someone affected by it.

Calling any negative/critical comment you receive 'bullying' makes the word pretty trivial IMO.

I can agree with this. Was this really 'bullying' ? Not really, but in the same vein...

Listen, I ****ing hate fat ****s. But its not important for ****ing EVERYONE to be svelte and perfect.
A) News people are jokes in 99% of the USA. Read some notes, make some commentary, meh.

B) Everyone SHOULD be svelte and perfect. That would be awesome. Y do u hate errything?

so much this. OT is awesome at taking one thing they don't like about someone and using it to define them. Letter writer is practically an honorary otter.

She is fat. She used this opportunity to go on television and publicly address all the people that ever called her fat so that she can sleep soundly at night knowing "she told them".

She had one email addressing her weight, how many do you think are flowing in now? I'm willing to bet its substantial.

somebody get me her email

During the CBS interview, Jennifer said she's struggled with her weight since she started having children a decade ago.

"If I could snap my fingers to be a size that I don't have to shop on the plus size rack that would be great..."

I think I've found the reason for her struggles. It takes a lot of finger-snaps to burn calories.

I don't consider that one email bullying. I do think it's stupid to assume she has the responsibility of being thinner to be a good role model. She's just a newscaster, not a celeb singer or movie star that has teenie-boppers fawning over her.

So now singers are role models and if so it's their appearance that matters.

What. The. ****.

A spin-off tangent of this would be, who exactly ARE role models for kids of today? I think it's indisputable that singers, actresses and athletes comprise a large, large majority of what kids see in front of them as "valued" by society, that leads them to think, "I want to be like them." Is a newsperson on TV that far away from that? I don't think so, and I'm not sure that, even if they are, that translates to a kid saying, "I want to be fat like that anchor lady." However, if one believes that a girl can become bulimic because she wants to be "skinny like that Vogue model," then it probably is reasonable to think another girl may say, "I want to be an anchorwoman because I don't have to be fit/skinny/whatever to do that."

There's a valid argument that, regardless of what you do for work, or in what capacity others interact with you, everyone should try to be healthy and good to their bodies, as an example for others. I know that part of my motivation is for my kids to see their dad taking good care of himself, just like my dad did (about to turn 70, still plays golf and tennis year-round, and goes about 5'9", 150). Now, my kids have lots of other scopes through which they view me, that's just one, but I still think it's important.

who the **** actually looks at an overweight news anchor and thinks that their child is processing that as being overweight is okay for their own body and the news anchor is a role model. i gauran****ingtee my kid doesnt look at the local news anchor. i wish. instead my 6 yr old is into Hannah Montana, Katy Perry, and punk rock. I venture to guess most of the people watching her show never thought "why isnt she losing weight" nobody cares about that ****. they get home from work, kick the dog, yell at the kids, grumble about life while they shovel food down their gullet watching the news.

the guys just obssessed for some reason about everyone looking fit. from his picture he looks like he's probably a complete socially awkward ****tard that works out so much because he hasnt gotten laid in years but cant comprehend its because he has the personality of an unwiped butthole. so he hits the gym 24/7 - the anchor shouldve let it go. no one cares about her feelings either.
