Catherine Bosley, the Ohio newsanchor who took off her clothes [link highly unsafe for work] during her Key West vacation and gave up her job after the photos were circulated on the Net, is defended by Mike Pechar:
Although high profile media people customarily have morals clauses in their contracts, her behavior in Key West was not necessarily immoral. She took her clothes off at a regularly planned event in a location where the behavior is considered acceptable.
A pornographic film actress just recently was on the ballot for the governorship of California and the morality of her behavior didn't disqualify her. By comparison, Catherine Bosley's behavior seems tame.
I'd agree with Mike that her behavior wasn't immoral there are times when it's darn hard to keep clothes on me [visual not safe for anyone] but I can see how the station management might have panicked: anything that might cost a tenth of a ratings point is to be avoided no matter what.
I had originally written something here about how difficult it might be to take Bosley seriously as a newscaster if all the guys are imagining what she looks like in her birthday suit, but it occurred to me about mid-sentence that guys probably do this routinely anyway.

As a follow up to a previous post, I posted an entry at eTALKINGHEAD (see here) which suggests that Catherine Bosley should not have been forced to resign from her television news position for frolicking onstage in Key West while nude. Although, no com......[read more]
The real reason she was fired was under the station's new Truth in Media campaign. In the light of The NY Times', CNN's and other's recent episodes, many media outlets have taken a hard line against fabrications of any kind being aired.
A cursory examination of the evidence will provide two glaring examples of just such fabriction.
Yeah Dad but they STILL wear makeup, don't they?
Aye, that they do.
I think, though, that they chalk that up under "spin."
I wonder at what point she looked down at the dozens of people with cameras and thought "bad idea!"
In russia they have a newscaster that strips while she reads the news. Unfortunately its not on my 5 channel rabbit ears... otherwise I might know whats going on in russia.
Does anybody else think she had a really boob job? I mean they look like a couple of suction cups on a flat chest in a couple of pics.
There's no such thing as a bad boob job. Some are just better than others.
If there's no such thing as a bad boob job, I'd love to see what you think of the butchering I saw once where one side was like two inches lower than the other side and the nipples made her chest look like a drunken sailor. I cannot believe even the most die-hard of breast men wouldn't hurl at the sight of that.
I mean, there have to be SOME standards, aren't there??
I've only seen one really good boob job, and it was a reduction.
Never get a boob job from a guy whose sleeves have leather straps on 'em.
Agreed - the boobs look fake.
Even worse - no pubic hair. Does she WAX down there? Yeowch!
Someone must have complained. I went back to look again due to the comments made and found that the page is still there but all the pictures have been removed.
