I think I'll fly naked next time...

What was the big news yesterday? The war perhaps? No? Hmmmmm, let me think...was it the Presidential race? No? Oh, I know. It was the Hooters waitress who got kicked off Southwest airlines for showing too much cleavage and thigh who is now appearing naked in Playboy. Silly me, of course all the major news sites covered that, it's huge news, right?

I know, I sound like a curmudgeon, but this isn't about whether or not Kyla Ebbert should sell naked pictures of herself for money. Go for it honey. Honestly, if that's how you want to make a living, what business is it of mine?

But how is this news? It was barely news when she got told she couldn't fly wearing the provocative but nowhere near obscene outfit you see in the picture. But okay, human interest, customer rights, that's a back page news blurb. But that same girl turning her 15 minutes into a nudie spread, why is that news? Is anyone shocked that a waitress from Hooters took tens of thousands of dollars to appear naked so that men could drool and masturbate?

Sorry...that's painting with a broad brush. I'm sure there are waitresses at Hooters who wouldn't pose for Playboy for less than 6 figures.

Fox, CNN, the rest of you guys. Let's try not to act as the marketing arm for Hugh Hefner and the rest of the folks hangin' in the grotto, okay? They can handle that on their own. Just give me the freakin' news.

It's very amusing to me just what exactly is classed as "newsworthy". That chick is only making the most of her fifteen minutes of fame, so more power to her.
News agencies should be ashamed.

Exactly, who cares if she wants to show the world her girly bits, but why CNN feels the need to report it to all of us I'll never know.

Oh silly T-Dude, you still think Walter Cronkite is on the air. I've given up on American 24 hour news providers. Go to CBC on line. Turn off the tv. Pour yourself a martini and make certain your girls wear longer skirts.
