To Fat To Be A News Anchor!

I saw this on CNN last night, is Jennifer Livingston to fat to be on the news?

Quote:
Jennifer Livingston, an anchor for CBS affiliate WKBT in La Crosse, Wi., addressed her bully head on after receiving a letter — which her husband, WKBT anchor Mike Thompson, posted on his Facebook page — that scolded her for being an unacceptable role model on television for young girls because of her weight.

"Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain," a portion of the letter read. "I leave you this note hoping that you'll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle."

Rest of the article here

Now I don't think it was particularily nice what he said but I do agree with it, having an obese person fronting the news everynight gives off the impression that being fat is ok, it's not a good example for anyone.

What do others think?

Your butt is wide, well mine is too
Just watch your mouth or I'll sit on you
The word is out, better treat me right
'Cause I'm the king of cellulite
Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat, all right

My zippers bust, my buckles break
I'm too much man for you to take
The pavement cracks when I fall down
I've got more chins than Chinatown

Well, I've never used a phone booth
And I've never seen my toes
When I'm goin' to the movies
I take up seven rows

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
Don't you call me pudgy, portly or stout
Just now tell me once again who's fat

When I walk out to get my mail
It measures on the Richter scale
Down at the beach I'm a lucky man
I'm the only one who gets a tan
If I have one more pie a la mode
I'm gonna need my own zip code

When you're only having seconds
I'm having twenty-thirds
When I go to get my shoes shined
I gotta take their word

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, sha mone
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And my shadow weighs forty-two pounds
Lemme tell you once again who's fat

If you see me comin' your way
Better give me plenty space
If I tell you that I'm hungry
Then won't you feed my face

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, sha mone
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
Woo woo woo, when I sit around the house
I really sit around the house

You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know, you know, you know, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And you know all by myself I'm a crowd
Lemme tell you once again

You know I'm huge, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, you know, hoo
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And the whole world knows I'm fat and I'm proud
Just tell me once again who's fat

I support Jennifer Livingston and she deserves a lot of credit for taking on that obnoxious pr!ck. Rather refreshing considering the canned, scripted and predictable nature of news outlets today.
She is in Wisconsin and she the average size in Wisconsin. I see nothing wrong with her nor see any shortcomings.
It doesn't affect her job and news reporters usually aren't attractive anyway. That's more (and should be) more of an issue for flight attendants.
I really don't understand why some people obsess themselves with other people's weight.
The man who wrote that nasty letter is a total coward because no one knows what he looks like. He could very well look like hell himself. Same for anyone else that brings this issue up over an over again in a Internet discussion board, yet never reveals their own identity....

I don't see being fat as even in the same ballpark as the two issues you mentioned, you can't do anything about the color of your skin or who you are attracted too, you can do something about being fat.

Quoting Superfly (Reply 10):

I'd like to see you prove that having tattoos is anywhere near as dangerous to your health as being obese.

Personally I see fat as similar issue to smoking we all know the health risks associated with smoking and smoking rates are dropping, we all know being fat is dangerous yet obesity rates are climbing. I think the problem is being fat is becoming socially acceptable, this is wrong fat is not good, we don't defend smokers so why should we defend fatties.

Not in all cases. To some extent you're fighting genetics and there are other factors that may cause someone to not lose weight effectively or at all. My wife has a hormonal disorder that makes it more difficult for her to lose weight compared to others. Frankly speaking she'd be considered overweight based on BMI alone (which is BS). Yet she is an avid runner, watches her diet, practices yoga, and is in pretty good health overall. The point that Livingston makes is that Krause doesn't know her personally and doesn't know what her circumstances are. To criticize her like this *is* bullying.

I don't know, I'd think the risks of hepatitis B/C, HIV/AIDS, or other bloodborne pathogens are a bit more dangerous to your health (and the health of others) than having a few extra pounds.

Well I think that if you can you should lose the weight and a lot of effort has to be put into achieving that from all parties, but discriminating against fat people when there isn't an obvious safety issue (fat F/A or pilot, say) is not morally acceptable and will not achieve the desired outcome. If she lost her job would it help her lose weight ? Don't think so.

Didn't realize that was his sister! Still though, it's not like they're identical twins - they'll have genetic similarities but enough differences that she may have other factors going for her (PCOS being one that springs to mind straight away)

Totally agreed! I was easily doing 30-40 miles a week on my bicycle and was doing that routinely when I lived in San Francisco, yet 260 pounds. I never felt my weight was an issue for me to exercise, have energy, get girls, etc.
According to those silly BMI charts, I'm 'supposed' to be 165 pounds since I'm 5'11".
I would look totally SICK at 165 pounds. I haven't weight that light since I was in 9th grade way back in the 80s. I've seen guys that are 5'11" and 165 pounds. I think it looks extremely frail and sick.

Yes she does, although I wouldn't put her in a 'would you hit it?' threads either.

It's funny how there are so many 'slim' women in her age bracket that smoke, think they know it all and can't keep a man. Yet Jennifer Livingston is a full-figure lady that is a professional anchor woman, married an has 2 children. Apparently she is doing something right and all these haters can go stuff a sock up their you know what....

BMI was developed in the early-mid 19th century by a Belgian mathematician and it's notably fraught with errors. Many pro athletes are considered "overweight" or "obese" based off BMI because it doesn't take into account frame size or muscularity. Penn & Teller's "Bullshit!" did a great episode on BMI featuring a "fatlympics" with several participants who had normal BMIs and several with "overweight or obese" BMIs. The gold medal winner came from the latter category.

At the same time I know people who have perfectly fine BMIs who are walking ads for atherosclerosis based on their diets and lack of exercise - they just lucked out and hit the genetic lottery.
