TV Critic Quote of the Week

"When you watch TV these days, it's hard not to feel as if femininity is at some kind of impasse, and the prognosis looks, well, less than good. More than ever before, the parade of TV faces suggests that women on the idiot box have been split into two completely polarized camps: On one hand, there's the Paris Hilton model (simple, hot, "wild," objectified); and then there are the Daughters of Oprah (completely desexualized, still relishing the culture of victimhood, seemingly excitable only by free cars and other missing women)...

Although, to be fair, their comeuppance is often swift: When N'Awlins broke, [Rita] Cosby was actually in Aruba, and every time they cut to her for comment, just the fact of where she was and what she was doing made everything that came out of her mouth sound like a very loud, very painful fart."

-Joey Sweeney, in a piece on "New Harpies" Rita Cosby and Nancy Grace, in Philadelphia City Paper.

Is Rita Cosby the one on CNBC that sounds like a man?

And has Tucker Carlson always been on CNBC? He really annoys me.
