Ugh. Just ugh.

Can I just say that I hate the Fox News 1/2 Hour News Hour?

Because according to them, pregnancy discrimination is non-issue. Because their message is apparently that pregnant women should know better than to think they're capable of doing their jobs or that they should be entitled to their state-mandated worker's rights before, during, and after their pregnancies. That pregnant women don't need to make a living. They should just shut up and smile and bask in the glow of the little miracle growing inside their bodies whether or not they are able to financially support it. And that those who actually speak up and demand their rights are loud, strident, baby-hating bitches. This garbage is on national television. Thanks a lot, Fox. You've sunk to a new low.

Wow, I couldn't even finish that.

I didn't know that Fox News had any kind of "comedy" program. WTF?

kate: Sure did. Isn't that awful?

cara: It's incredibly appropriate that you put "comedy" in quotes. It wasn't really funny, was it?
