    This is the new liberal tactic. Anyone who criticizes another is guilty of bullying!!!

    The fatter Americans are the better. The Social Security problem will be fixed if most people die before they can collect. Shorter life spans mean lower ObamaCare costs too.

    So eat that bag of donuts! Eat that entire chocolate cake! The country is depending on you!

    The left has not quite gotten to legislating good health, but they are working on it.

    The guy sent her a private email that did not IMO attack her as she alleged. He simply stated the facts about obesity. Then, she and her husband chose to go public with it and then she attacks him for being a bully!

    And she's supposed to be a journalist? Where'd she go to school, the U of W at the peoples' republic of Madison?

    I thought that was strange too. Obviously she wants to make an issue of this. May have sent the e-mail to herself. Another PR stunt masquerading as news.

    I don't get this. Why have you lurched from someone's criticism of fatties to left/right politics? Not everything can be blamed on Rush's "liberuls," you know.

    Perhaps you should seek a life.

    I don't think the emailer was trying to point out something she couldn't see, but rather wondering if she could address the weight issue and be an even better role model to everyone.

    Isn't this basically the same message as Michelle Obama? Let's Move!

    I'm fat. No, I'm more than fat, I'm obese. I had a health problem that pretty much left me unable to move around much an I bloated like a beached whale. The good news is that I'm now losing the excess.

    The question is, how much is too much?

    Weight/height charts have been altered over the years, lowering weight limits.

    Where once a size 5 was desireable, now models can't be any bigger than a size two.

    Prince Charles teased Lady Di about being fat - at a time when she was bulemic. Princess Kate is a bonebag. Any woman on tv is expected to be very thin. Yet men can look like Rush Limbaugh or Karl Rove and that's okay.

    You want to get grossed out, search "Pro-Ana" on Youtube. Anorexia kills.

    Yes, extreme weight does too, but there's nothing wrong with a woman being a size 12-18. Funny thing, plus-size models are often a size 10.

    That news anchor was a bit big, but not dangerously so. Does having a few extra pounds make her unable to understand the news? Is the entirety of that station's viewers rail-thin?

    The guy that wrote that letteris a size-ist. It's the new hate group.

    She was interviewed with her husband and it was revealed that she runs marathons and is overweight not from a lack of exercise but a thyroid condition. That is why she told the bully that he doesn't know her!

    From the OP:

    She's just a newsreader meaning she's an entertainer and that means looks matter. You fatties want laws forcing the casting director of "Cinderalla" to hire rosie odonell.
