    Is Gretchen Carlson playing dumb? - THE WEEK

    Is Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson "dumbing down" her on-air personality to appeal to Fox News viewers? Daily Show host Jon Stewart thinks so, and he points out that Carlson — who graduated with honors from Stanford and is a classically trained violinist — routinely makes a show of looking up words like "czar" and "ignoramus." (See video below.) Is her "troubled mom" schtick real, or is she just trying to score points against liberals?

    Yes, she sure is. She used to be on the Saturday Morning Show (CBS, I believe) and she was a normal likeable person, and could speak on a variety of subjects without being political. It's as if she's been brainwashed or something. She looks crazed when she is speaking now.

    No need for a blonde to play at being dumb.

    Gretchen Carlson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Michelle Bachman was her nanny?


    Carlson was raised in Anoka, Minnesota, and graduated from Anoka-Hennepin School District 11's Anoka High School, in 1984, as valedictorian.[2] One of her childhood nannies was Michele Bachmann, the future Republican congresswoman.[3] Carlson is also a former beauty queen. She won the title, "Miss Minnesota," and then, in 1989,[4] became the third woman from that state to win the "Miss America" title. For the talent competition, Carlson played the violin, an instrument with which she continues to perform.

    Carlson graduated with Honors from Stanford University, in 1990, with a self-designed degree in the field of organizational behavior. While a student at Stanford, she studied abroad at Oxford University.[5]

    Carlson is married to sports agent Casey Close, whose clientele includes Ryan Howard, Derek Jeter and formerly Josh Hamilton.[6] They have two young children.[7]
