A six-minute video posted to YouTube on Tuesday exhibits 70 different instances of sexism on Fox News over recent years, and it’s a parade of prejudicial pomposity.
Network personalities like Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Chris Wallace, Greg Gutfeld, Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs and others — including some women — are edited together making statements like “Know your role and shut your mouth,” “Dating is legal prostitution” and “Female happiness is an oxymoron.”
Author of “The Man’s No-Nonsense Guide to Women” Marc Rudov makes several appearances in the video, issuing two of the above statements as well as remarking during a visit to “The O’Reilly Factor” that “Men are depressed and it’s their own fault, because men are allowing women to take over the world.”
Papa Bear himself can be seen saying on his show, “There’s gotta be some downside to having a woman president, right? Something.”
Other memorable one-liners include this gem from Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow during a discussion about the dispute between Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiancé over their frozen embryos: “I think men should be able to veto women’s abortions.”
“That’s why divorce rates are so high,” contributor Stacey Dash said on “Outnumbered”: “Women don’t know how to take care of their men anymore.”
The network recently found itself at the center of a national debate over women’s issues when a row between Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and presidential candidate Donald Trump spilled over from the first GOP debate of the election. After what Trump characterized as unfair treatment from Kelly, who co-moderated the debate, the real estate mogul suggested Kelly had it out for him, with blood coming out of her eyes or “wherever.” The comment was immediately panned by political and media pundits who believed that Trump insinuated Kelly was menstruating.
While there’s question as to Trump’s true meaning, it’s a sentiment that might find a home in the next supercut. As Neil Cavuto can be seen saying in the above video, “A ho is a ho, right?”
