Martha MacCallum: Female Fox News Hosts Aren’t ‘Blond Barbies’

In a column published in the Los Angeles TimesDavid Horsey referred to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee as a “slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games.”

In an op-ed published Wednesday, MacCallum called out David Horsey for his Los Angeles Times column in which he called female Fox News hosts “blond Barbies in short, tight skirts.” Though the offending sections have since been removed.

“We work hard, get our stories right and are proud of what we do and the success we’ve achieved,” she writes in the piece. “We’re experienced journalists and reporters, most of us have been at it a long time. Between us, we’ve worked at all the networks and most prominent newspapers and publications,” she wrote.

“We’re proud that our “lineup” is “stocked” with some of the sharpest, brightest women in the business.”

MacCallum describes her career in journalism, starting at the Wall Street Journal and moving on to CNBC and NBC before landing her own primetime show at Fox News.

“In my 13 years at Fox News, I have covered countless national and international stories, four presidential election cycles from beginning to end as a reporter, an anchor and a debate moderator. I now host The Story, a primetime news program, which has been number one in its time slot since it premiered.”
MacCallum describes the strong work ethic at Fox News.
“The Fox News that I know and work in is a team of producers, technicians, photographers, truck operators and production managers who barely have time to eat lunch,” she wrote. 
MacCallum reiterated that her success is not the product of her hair color or the tightness of her dresses, “It’s about elbow grease, dedication and sacrificing time with our families and friends.”
Liberal media knows all about elbow grease but it usually happens under the table.
